  3. Question 1- Which diagram shows how energy moves from one kind of living thing to another? *A Consumer  decomposers  producers* * B Producers  decomposers  consumers* * C Producers  consumers  decomposers* * D Decomposers  consumers  producers*

  4. Question 2 – A fishbowl with a goldfish living in it is not an accurate model of the fish’s natural habitat because the fish bowl— *A only contains one type of animal.* *B contains water and nutrients for the fish.* *C has sand at the bottom.* *D has rocks for the fish to hide under.*

  5. Question 3 – Removing too many small fish from parts of the ocean where sharks live will most likely cause sharks to— *A have more babies.* *B move closer to shore.* *C start eating plants rather than fish.* *D change color to hide themselves from predators.*

  6. Question 4 – Why do many birds build their nests high in trees? *D A nest that is high up helps birds avoid predators.* *A Birds lay their eggs in trees.* *B It is easier for birds to get there.* *C There is no room for bird nests on the ground.*

  7. Question 5 – The energy that plants use to live and grow is provided by— *A the sun.* *B the rain.* *C fertilizer.* *D wind power.*

  8. Question 6 – Birds often lay eggs and then cover the eggs by sitting on them because this— *A protects the eggs from sunlight.* *C keeps them warm to help them hatch.* *B hides the eggs from predators.* *D makes more room for the bird to sleep in the nest.*

  9. Question 7 – A sandhill crane typically lives in a shortgrass prairie or a marsh and eats plants, insects, fruit, and worms. A bird like the sandhill crane would have the hardest time hunting in an environment that is mostly— *A snowy and cold.* *B rocky and warm.* *C sandy and wet.* *D rainy and hot.*

  10. Question 8 – All of the following are adaptations of plants EXCEPT— *B photosynthesis.* *A sharp spines.* *C fragrant flowers.* *D specialized root systems.*

  11. Question 9 – A camel has large padded feet so that it does not sink in or get burned on the hot sand. These adaptations would be most useful in the— *B swamp.* *A desert.* *C grassland.* *D mountains.*

  12. Question 10 – The elephant has many veins in its ears. Flapping its ears cools the blood flowing through these veins. This adaptation would be an advantage in a climate that is very— *D hot.* *A windy.* *B rainy.* *C cool.*

  13. Question 11 – The ability of an animal to blend into its environment is known as— *A metamorphosis.* *D camouflage.* *B hibernation.* *C migration.*

  14. Question 12 – From observing the body structure of a giraffe, what would most likely be it primary source of food? *C Leaves* *A Mice* *B Fish* *D Gazelles*

  15. Question 13 – A crocodile is often mistaken as a dead log floating in the water. In what type of environment would a crocodile most likely live? *B Wetlands* *A Desert* *C Ocean* *D Tundra*

  16. Question 14 –Why is it necessary for female frogs to lay hundreds of eggs in order for its species to survive? *A All of the eggs hatch and cause overcrowding.* *C Many of the tadpoles are eaten before reaching adulthood.* *B The water is too dirty for many of the frogs to survive.* *D Many female frogs are eaten before they can lay eggs.*

  17. Question 15 – Many animals have colored skin or fur that helps them blend into their environments. What might happen to a deer that was born an albino (all white) without its natural camouflage? *D It would be easily noticed by predators.* *A It would be smaller than the other deer.* *B It would live longer than the other deer.* *C It would be ignored by all the predators.*

  18. Question 16 – What food might a bird with a strong cone-like beak most likely eat? *C Seeds and nuts* *A Fish from the sea* *B Nectar from flowers* *D Small mammals*

  19. Question 17 – Pigeons naturally nest in high places that are protected from wind and rain. If all of the trees in a pigeon’s environment were cut down, where might the pigeon build her nest? *B In a shrub or bush* *A Under tall bridges* *C In tall grasses* *D On top of a rock pile*

  20. Question 18 – Which of the following characteristics would NOT be an advantage in a hot climate? *A Long tail* *C Layers of fat* *B Strong beak* *D Sharp claws*

  21. Question 19 – The intertidal zone of the ocean is where the beach and the water meet. When the tide is high, the beach is under water. When the tide is low, the beach is out of the water. The organisms that live on the beach have the ability to do all of the following EXCEPT— *D dry out in the sun.* *A survive the crashing waves.* *B find food for themselves.* *C live in moist sand.*

  22. Question 20 – Coral reefs serve as home to many salt-water creatures. How might disturbing the coral reef affect the underwater ecosystem? *B The fish could lose shelter and food supply.* *A The number of fish may increase.* *C The coral may grow too large for fish to live there.* *D The coral reef would move to another location.*

  23. Question 21 – If many frogs were removed from a pond ecosystem, which of the following might happen? *B The bug population would increase.* *A All of the fish in the pond would die.* *C There would be less water in the pond.* *D The plants in the pond could not survive.*
