Organisms we saw outside
What animals/insects need to survive
What plants need to survive
Where we get all of this.
- Carbon dioxide and oxygen come from the air.
- Plants get water from soil and it draws up from roots.
- Animals get water from body's of water except saltwater!
- Animals get food from meat (carnivores) and plants (herbivores) and some animals eat both (omnivores).
- Plants get nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium from soil or dirt.
- Plants get sunlight from the sun, or lights.
- Our main source of energy, is food!
- We get calcium from food.
Human Food Label
| || |
1. We find energy (calories) at the very top of the nutrition label. It is the the second nutrition fact.
2. Vitamins are at the bottom of the page. Carbohydrates are ninth on the list. The amount of proteins is located at the bottom of the page. Fat is third on the list. Iron is located in the same section as vitamins.
3. At the very bottom of the page.
Pet Food Label

1. The list of ingredients can be found at the top of the nutrition label.
2. The percentage is located at the right of the ingredient.
Both Food Labels
| || |
1. There are percentages of how much food you need of that day. Also there are many different nutrients and minerals in foods.
2. Tomato soup. None of the ingredients came from animals.
3. tomato puree comes from tomatoes and soybeans come from soybeans. "according to Google, a soybean is a plant." Carrot fiber comes from carrots. Carrots are also plants according to Google.
4. Pet food labels don't have grams, they have percents. Pet food labels also don't have nutrition facts. Instead, they have guaranteed analysis. Also on the pet food label, they have the ingredients at the top, not like the human food label at the bottom. There are so much differences in pet and human food labels.
5. I will chose a rabbit. I think a rabbit eats grass, fruits, and vegetables. A rabbit gets fiber from grass, fruits, and vegetables. A rabbit get most of it's important nutrients from fruits and vegetables.

1. Food provides animals and humans with energy, important nutrients and minerals, we need. The energy from the food helps us repair our body, maintains warmth, helps us grow, and helps us move around. Overall, food is very important to humans and animals and it would be impossible to survive without it.
2. They both have proteins and fats. Although, the pet food label has crude protein and fats. I have no idea what crude is but they both have some sort of fats and proteins in them.
3. I could be good and can be bad. Calories are measured by energy in foods. If you want your dog to not be so hyper, give him less calories. If you want your dog to be more energetic, give him more calories.
"This is what I think."
4. Protein, carbohydrates, fats, and vitamin C. Also I was thinking maybe potassium because it prevents muscle cramps but the first four I am sure that they help repair our bodies and grow. Also maybe calcium because it makes us have strong bones which I think of it as our bones are growing.
5. Calories, fiber, and antioxidants. These are the only three I could really find out. This was a lot harder to find than number 4.
6. This energy transfers into animals to make them survive. Without food, we would die. Food doesn't just fill us up, it gives us energy to walk around and do things.
7. This is a tough question. I went to How Stuff Works and I got statistics of how much grams of nutrients make up a calorie. 44 calories in 11g of carbohydrates. 32 calories in 8g of protein. 99 calories in 9g of fat. The total amount of energy in milk is 175 calories. But according to the nutrition label, there is only 160 calories.
8. Solids or Liquids? I am thinking that they are talking about this kind of matter.
