    Bees are important to humans because they collect pollen from flowers to make honey. They also help pollinate flowers to grow.

    Slugs try to hide and camouflage themselves using plants. This is because they have soft bodies and predators can easily eat them if they don’t blend in with the plants.

    Use a dictionary to find the meaning of these words:
    * environment *species *pollen *quantity *threatened

    • Environment means everything around us, such as land air or water.
    • Species means a group of living things that can mate with one another but not with those of other groups.
    • Pollen means the fine, yellow powder made by a flowering plant. When pollen is carried by the wind or by an insect to another plant of the same kind, it fertilizes that plant’s seeds.
    • Quantity means the amount or number of something.
    • Threatened having an uncertain chance of surviving into the future. Because so much of its habitat is lost, the species is now threatened and may soon become extinct. The people living in that region believe that their traditional way of life is threatened.
