Dive into the realm of species interactions with our free symbiosis worksheets. Apart from explicating that symbiosis is a long-term biological association between organisms of different species, this collection also delves deeper into the types of symbiosis, including mutualism, commensalism, parasitism, competition, and mimicry.
These symbiosis pdfs are most recommended for grade 6, grade 7, and grade 8 learners.
Nothing cuts through the monotony of a science session like an illustrated exercise. Let 6th grade and 7th grade students look at the picture pairs and write the type of symbiosis they participate in.
Some symbiotic relationships are mutually beneficial, while others have neutral or negative dynamics. This symbiosis chart features a crisp explanation and examples for the different types.
When it comes to biology, terminology is of paramount importance. Call to mind the definitions of terms like host, parasite, and predation, among others, before matching them.
This symbiosis worksheet tasks learners with pairing up organisms based on the symbiotic relationships they take part in.
Each description depicts in great detail the interactions that define the relationship between pairs of organisms. Figure out if it is mutualism, commensalism, mimicry, or parasitism.
Making room for more examples from the wild, this section of our symbiosis worksheets requires students to identify the subtypes of mimicry or competition exemplified in each scenario.
Straightforward and efficient, this exercise expects 7th graders and 8th graders to analyze if organisms involved in different types of symbiosis are harmed, benefited, or remain unaffected.
With all the pairs of organisms in this segment involved in commensalism, mutualism, or parasitism, the challenge for budding biologists is to check the correct option for each pair of species.
Offering a brief, yet impactful, taste of symbiosis in the wild, this printable symbiosis worksheet calls for choosing the correct option that describes each interspecific relationship featured.
While obligate symbiosis is essential for the organisms involved to survive, facultative symbiosis is not as necessary for survival. Determine which of these types each scenario represents.
