The Prairie ecosystem By: Kristina Duckett & Jason Sands The role of the sun The sun helps the grass grow so it can provide food for the animals The sun made some plants light colored and that helps reflect the sun’s heat Food Webs This is a food web of the Prairie these animals are Producers, Consumers, and Decomposers Interactions throughout the prairie Buffalos eat grass, leaves, and flowers and they can’t live without them. Deer eat plants and they can’t live without them. Birds eat bugs and they can’t live without them. The weather and seasons on the prairie The weather is mostly hot but sometime’s is sunny, rainy, and snowy. The seasons are winter, summer, spring, and fall Interaction between animals and plants • When deer eat plants they get energy. • Prairie dogs make their homes in the grass. • Plants help maintain the diversity of the prairie ecosystem by attracting animals that will use it for food and habitat. How living things meet their needs. They eat and drink water. A Buffalo eats grass and so do other animals. Some animals that eat meat are red tailed hawks and Vultures. They also have adaptations such as camouflage and speed. Why the living things live here They have special functions and adaptations that help them survive. The adaptations help them make a home above ground or underground. Bibliographies Johnson L. Rebecca. A Walk In The Prairie. Biomes of North America, Johnson L. Rebecca, 2001 Quigley, Mary.
