Chapter Name: Habitat
Activity Name: Who lives where in Habitat
In this experiment, we will observe and categorize various organisms based on their habitats. We will create a list of organisms and identify the habitats in which they reside. This activity will help us understand the diverse habitats that different organisms occupy.
- Paper or notebook
Step by Step Procedure:
- Begin by gathering the required items and finding a comfortable place to work.
- Take the list of organisms provided: Ant, human beings, elephant, lotus, wall spider, oyster, fish, rabbit, bee, sparrow, dung beetle, earthworm, korameenu (murrel), squirrel, rat, crab, snail, bat, pistia, water hyacinth, monkey, prawn (royyalu), tiger prawn.
- Review the list and remove any organisms that are unfamiliar to you or not relevant to your local environment.
- Add any additional animals and plants that you observe around you and want to include in the experiment.
- Now, categorize the remaining organisms based on their habitats. For example:
- Land habitat (e.g., human beings, elephant, rabbit, squirrel, rat, monkey)
- Water habitat (e.g., fish, oyster, crab, snail, prawn)
- Air habitat (e.g., sparrow, bee, bat)
- Aquatic plants (e.g., lotus, pistia, water hyacinth)
- Terrestrial plants (e.g., korameenu, dung beetle)
- Write down the categorized list of organisms and their respective habitats in your notebook or on a sheet of paper.
- Take a moment to reflect on the diversity of habitats and the range of organisms that inhabit them.
- The organisms can be classified into different habitats such as land, water, air, aquatic plants, and terrestrial plants.
- Each habitat has a unique set of organisms that are adapted to survive and thrive in those environments.
- When adding new organisms to the list, ensure that they are safe to handle and observe.
- If you are uncertain about the habitat of a particular organism, it’s best to conduct some research or seek guidance from an expert.
Lesson Learnt from Experiment:
Through this experiment, we have learned that different organisms have specific habitats where they live and survive. Understanding these habitats helps us appreciate the diversity of life forms and their adaptations to various environments.
It also highlights the interconnectedness of organisms within ecosystems, as they rely on their specific habitats for food, shelter, and other resources.
