• Has spines to
protect itself from
predators.
• Live in a social
group.
Lesson Objectives:
• To state what things
an animal competes for
in its environment.
• To describe how
particular adaptations
in animals make it a
successful competitor
~ explain why

Competition In Action
Watch the
following three
video clips and fill in
your work sheet,
stating:
~ what the animal is

that make the
animal successful

Successful Competitors
From the animal you
designed last week, select
three of its labelled
adaptations and explain
how that makes your
animal a successful
competitor.
Think about:
• how it gets its food?
• how to attract a mate?
• its territory
Spot the Competitor!
In the blue corner....we
have the African Elephant
For each example, list as many
adaptations as you can and explain
why that makes it a good
competitor!
In the red corner....we
have the Hyena
Competition In Animals
Animals that are well adapted are most
likely to win the competition for these
resources so they are then more likely to
survive and reproduce.
What do animals compete for?

PREDATOR OR PREY? Or BOTH?
Predators and prey
 Write down what you think makes
these animals good predators?
 What features do the prey have
that enable them to avoid being
eaten?
Design your own
 Choose either a predator or prey.
 You must draw and label your animal.
Diagram with features
Details of how the features work
Explain how the features help the animal to survive

Extension:
1) Draw a possible pyramid of number for your animal and others around it.
2) Draw a predator prey relationship graph for your animal.
3) complete the questions in the book add them to your work
