VR Tour For Std. 6 Ch. 1: Food: Where does It come from?
What's Included in Virtual tour of this chapter
The main sources of food are plants and animals. Plants are a source of fruits, vegetables, grains, pulses etcetera. Animals are sources of milk, eggs, meat products, etc. The plant has mainly five parts. They are root, stem, leaves, flowers, and fruits. Plants store their food in different parts. So we can use different parts of plants as food. Animals are classified into three broad categories in terms of what they eat. The herbivores only consume plant parts. The carnivores only consume the meat of other animals. And the omnivores, who eat both plant parts and meat.
Virtual tour 1: Sources of Food
Food is the fuel of life. Without food, living beings cannot survive. So it is important for us to know where our food actually comes from. The primary source of all the food on earth is “plants”. We do not get all our food from plants. A good portion of the food we eat comes from animals. Foods like chicken, mutton, beef, and pork are extracted from animals. Ripened plants of the food grains are processed to extract the food grain.
Virtual tour 2: Herbivores, Carnivores, and Omnivores
Animals fall into three distinct groups based upon what they eat. Any animal that sustains itself solely on meat is classified as a carnivore. The animals that eat both plants and animals are called omnivores. Animals that eat only plants will be classified as an herbivore. They only consume plant parts.
