StandardsLife Science S3L1. Students will investigate the habitats of different organisms and the dependence of organisms on their habitat. Differentiate between habitats of Georgia (mountains, marsh/swamp, coast, Piedmont, Atlantic Ocean) and the organisms that live there. Identify features of green plants that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia. Identify features of animals that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia. Explain what will happen to an organism if the habitat is changed.The Georgia Piedmont


Piedmont means foot of the mountain.The Georgia Piedmont is located between the coastal plain and the mountains in the northern half of Georgia. It covers the middle of Georgia.Features:The piedmont is an area of rolling hills. The piedmont has forests, lakes and rivers. Major River is the Chattahoochee River

More FeaturesMild winters and hot summers.Most number of people in GA live in this region.

Soil in the PiedmontRed clay gives the ground its color.Animals in the Piedmontwild turkeyRaccoonsSquirrelsDeerbirds of preyeastern bluebirdsopossums.Red foxAnimal features that allow them to live and thrive:Body covering allows animals to survive in hot and cold conditions.Claws or talons for hunting prey.Fur to survive winters.Animal Featureswild turkey Raccoons Squirrels Deer

birds of prey eastern bluebirds opossums Red fox

Plant features that allow them to live and thrive: Plants can survive hot summers and cold winters.Aggressive growing plants with long vines (kudzu)Trees have thick bark to protect against cold winters,insects, and animal invasion.Thick bark also protects against trees drying out.Deciduous trees drop leaves in fall to minimize waterloss.These plants include but are not limited to:Kudzupine treesoak treeshickory treesdogwood treesPiedmont PlantsKudzu Pine trees Oak trees Hickory trees Dogwood trees
