Tennessee Aquarium

Brooke Hudson Scrapbook

As soon as I walked into the door, I smelled fish. I looked around and saw many different kinds of animals including fish, penguins, butterflies, and more. I heard lots of kids screaming and water flowing.

The penguin's habitat is very rocky and slippery. Most of the time it is cold. The penguins get their food from the water.

individual - a specific  organism that is apart from a group.

population - organisms in a group who live in a certain area.

The penguins eat fish from the water to stay alive. They also grow thick fur to protect them from the cold snow and water.

Community

The fish could all feed off of the coral reefs. This is commensalism. An example of mutualism is bees and flowers. The bees pollinate the flower so it can reproduce and the flower gives the bee food. An example of parasitism is fleas and dogs. The flea attaches itself to the dog for its own benefits and the dog gets nothing in return.

community - a group of organisms living in the same place or having a certain characteristic in common.

ecosystem - a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.

The organisms in a community depend on each other to survive. They need the other organisms for food and homes.

Kingdoms

#1 - Protista (moss) #2 - Fungi (mushrooms) #3 - Plantae (tree with flowers) #4 - Animal (shark)

Protista are eukaryotic, multicellular, and autotrophs.

Fungi reproduce asexually, are multicellular, and are autotrophs.

Plantae are autotrophs, exchange gases, and are eukaryotic.

Animals reproduce sexually, are heterotrophs, and have exchange gases.

Food Web

I chose the human. The human is a consumer and a heterotroph. It is because they rely on other organisms as a food and energy source and they don't produce energy themselves.

producer - an organism that makes, grows, or supplies goods or commodities for sale.

consumer - an organism that eats or uses something.

decomposer - an organism, especially a soil bacterium, fungus, or invertebrate, that decomposes organic material.

Abiotic Factors

The first picture is a picture of a glacier. The second is a picture of rocks and the sun. The final picture is a mountain. These are all abiotic factors because they aren't living. Living things exchange gases, get rid of waste, and react to environmental change.

Penguins go in the water and eat the fish. Because the water is so cold, the penguins grow thick fur to keep warm. The glaciers are frozen water, so they are really cold. The mountain is home to many different organisms.
