13. Niche an organism’s particular role, or how it makes its living. A niche includes the activities and behaviors that help it satisfy the need for food, water, living space, and reproduction
14. Competition the struggle between organisms to survive in a habitat with limited resources

16. Predator an animal that hunts and kills other animals for food
17. Prey an animal that a predator feeds upon

30. Food Web the pattern of overlapping food chains in an ecosystem. It shows various ways energy can move through an ecosystem
31. Energy Pyramid a diagram that shows the amount of energy that moves from one feeding level to another in a food chain
32. Water Cycle - the processes of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation that recycles our water supply
33. Evaporation the process by which molecules of a liquid absorb energy and change to the gas state
34. Condensation a gas changes to a liquid
35. Precipitation rain, snow, sleet or hail that falls from the sky
36. Transpiration evaporation of water from the leaves of a plant
37. Carbon and Oxygen The producers use the carbon from the carbon dioxide they take in to produce other carbon containing molecules. They give off oxygen which the consumers take in
