Many animals need to
eat plants to stay alive.
These animals are called
Herbivores. They eat
plants such as leaves,
grass, flowers, seeds,
fruit, and much more.

Monarch Butterfly
Monarch butterflies like
the warm weather.
Baby caterpillars that
turn into Monarch
butterflies are called
‘larvae’
(National Geographic, 2013a).

Larvae eat a plant
called ‘milkweed’ to
survive. This plant
grows in the warm
weather of Summer
(National Geographic, 2013a).
Retrieved from: http://www.wiseacre-gardens.com/plants/wildflower/milkweed_swamp_flower.jpg
Monarch butterflies die in the
winter weather as it is too
cold. They find it hard to eat in
winter as milkweed doesn’t
grow a lot.

Monarch butterflies move to
another home where they can
survive in the warm weather and
find milkweed to eat. This is
called migration. During winter,
Monarch butterflies migrate from
Canada to California and Mexico
where it is warm.

Brown Bears
Brown Bears live in forested
mountains, meadows, or river
valleys (International Reading
Association [IRA], 2005).
They adapt to seasonal changes
by eating lots of food in
Autumn (fall season) to
prepare for their Winter
hibernation (IRA, 2005).
Brown Bears mostly eat grass,
roots, and berries. They may
eat fish, insects, and ground
squirrels (IRA, 2005).

Hibernation: Brown Bears
hibernate. This means they sleep
during the whole Winter season
(IRA, 2005).
Why do Brown Bears
hibernate in winter?
The plant food that Brown Bears eat does not grow often during
winter and there may not be enough fish available. This is why
brown bears eat a lot before winter. They need to store the food
in their bodies to survive during their winter hibernation (IRA, 2005).

Brown Bears curl up in their dens or caves
to keep their body heat and stay warm
during their winter hibernation
(IRA, 2005).

Red Kangaroos
Red Kangaroos live in
the inland forests and
deserts of Australia.
These are the hot and
dry parts of Australia,
especially during the
summer time Monroe, 2013).

Retrieved from: http://www.elster-creek.org.au/900/Themeda%20triandra%209009.jpg
They like to live near areas
where there is Kangaroo
Grass. This grass helps them
survive during all seasons as it
grows and stays green in the hot
and dry summer weather (Monroe,
2013).
How do Red Kangaroos stay cool in the hot
Summer weather?
Red Kangaroos sit in the
shade under large trees
and bushes (Monroe, 2013).

Retrieved from: http://wildliferescuemagazine.com/uploads/3/0/8/0/3080007/5574903_orig.jpg
Red Kangaroos like to sit all day
when it is hot and save their energy.
They move less during the day to
save their body’s water and stay
hydrated (Monroe, 2013).
Red Kangaroos lick
their forearms to keep
their bodies cool (Monroe,
2013).
Retrieved from: http://www.use.com/images/s_2/Red_kangaroo_licking_its_forearm_to_cool_down_3095fbb8cae615647703_1.jpg
When seasons change, Red Kangaroos like to
migrate to different areas in Australia to find water and
more nutritious food (Monroe, 2013) . They move when there
home does not enough food or water because of little
rainfall (Monroe, 2013).
