Mini-Quiz: Animals Compete for Food

by Ron Kurtus (15 June 2007)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What does the expression "the early bird gets the worm" indicate?

There is no other food early in the morning

The industrious bird wins the competition over the other birds

Birds will eat almost anything

2. What would two chimpanzees do if they both found some food?

They would hug and agree to share the food

The predator chimp would ignore the food and try to eat the other chimp

They would each try to gain possession of the food in a head-to-head battle

3. What does the rabbit do if pursued by a fox?

It goes on the defensive and tries to flee

It bares its teeth to scare off the fox

It is larger than a fox and does not need to worry

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Winning Competitions. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Food can be a motivator
