Anthony is exploring a woodland habitat. He takes a photograph and writes a description of the woodland habitat:

The woodland is a habitat because it is a place where organisms like animals and plants make their homes. The animals I spotted in the woodland were a fox, a squirrel, a mouse, and a bird. I also saw plants, including lots of tall trees and small bushes. The ground was muddy and there were some big puddles. I looked under some rocks and saw some insects underneath. The animals and plants I saw all rely on the woodland habitat for their shelter, water, food, and space. The woodland habitat meets all of their needs so that they can survive.

What does the woodland provide that helps the fox survive?

  • AShelter
  • BSpace
  • CFood
  • DAll of the answers are correct.
