Students research an animal and their habitat. In this animal habitat lesson plan, students observe a WebQuest that describes the different habitats: deserts, tundra, rainforest, forest, and ocean. They determine which habitat their animal would live and how that home meets the animal's basic needs. 
Young scholars explore animal habitats. In this animal science lesson, students use the Internet to participate in a WebQuest about animal habitats.
Learners explore animal habitats in this collaborative lesson. First, they read Who Lives Here? by Dot and Sy Barlowe. Next, they get into groups to do research on one of three habitats, ponds, grasslands, or deserts. Finally, they create a visual presentation of what they learned, and share it with the class.
Second graders write and illustrate a story. In this habitats lesson plan, 2nd graders learn about different types of plant and animal habitats. Students view video segments about habitats, answer comprehension questions, complete a crossword puzzle, read stories about different animal habitats and use the information learned to write and illustrate a story about habitats.
Students investigate animal habitats in zoos. In this animal habitat lesson, students fill in a KWLH chart about zoos before looking at pictures of African animals in zoo habitats. They discuss what they see and take a field trip to the zoo where they take digital pictures of animals in their habitats. They complete an art project of a chosen habitat.
Oh no! The animals have escaped! Students start this lesson on animal habitats with a game, where the 'Zookeeper' gives clues to find the missing animals. When the fun is over students use a graphic organizer to sort animals into their proper habitats. The lesson would be appropriate for ELD or ESL students focused on describing and classification. Overall this lesson is ok, but seems lacking in content.
First graders define a habitat. They describe and illustrate the different types of habitats and the organisms found in the various habitats. They classify animal pictures into the correct habitats. They complete a summary activity of animals found in each habitat.
Groups of pupils circulate through five animal habitat stations and add information to the circle map located in each station. Then, they are shown the form of a lantern poem, and go to the computer lab in order to construct an original poem in the lantern form. They view a variety of animals in their habitats and create a poem about the animal of their choice. Both the poem and the picture are printed, and a bulletin board is created in class. Very nice!
Young scholars choose from the following list a method of presentation: writing piece, poster, diorama, song/rap, skit, PowerPoint presentation, or web page of a representation of a habitat, adaptation, an example of how we destroy/promote animal survival. They then provide a bibliography of resources cited.
Learning about animal habitats can be a lot of fun. This lesson focuses on how God created different habitats to suit different animal needs. Students will conduct library research in order to create a five page habitat slide show using Kidpix. Note: While this lesson may be appropriate for home-school, private, or Sunday school students it neglects that fact that animals adapt to their environments, which means this lesson does not meet standards.
Students explore animal lifestyles by researching their characteristics. In this animal habitat lesson, students read the story Over in the Jungle and analyze the animal illustrations in the book. Students create clay animal characters from the story and photograph their characters in their correct habitats.
Students explore natural animal habitats. In this lesson on biomimicry and habitation design, students will use classroom and field examples to examine animal habitats. Students will construct a model of a natural animal habitat. This lesson includes field work, multiple resources and spans several days.
Explore animal habitats with your class. They will investigate animal habitats and select an animal to research, provide details on, illustrate, and create a written piece on. They write sentences to create a story about an animal habitat of their choice that share with the class.
Students search outdoors for animal habitat locations, and take pictures of the habitats and the resources used by the animals to survive. They print their photographs, label the different elements, and display their data.
In this animal habitat worksheet, students read, analyze and solve 5 scenarios involving mathematics and animal habitats. Students work out each decision they decide as correct and write out a proposal for each one.
Students explore animal life by participating in class discussions. In this animal habitat lesson, students define a list of animal related vocabulary terms and discuss the living habits of specific animals. Students create a diorama of an animal habitat using the Internet and library books for research.
Students examine how animals create a unique space in which they can live. Students read a poem about animals' habitats discuss the habitats. They draw a space of their own and write a poem that describes their habitat.
Students categorize animal habitats after a field trip to the zoo. In this animal categorization lesson, students work in small groups to make a list of at least ten animals they saw during a field trip to the zoo. They categorize and graph the animals by putting them into three different habitat groups. They make class presentations with the students in their working groups.
Young scholars create a fact sheet naming an animal's habitat, distinguishing characteristics, eating type, country of origin, and any interesting information that they research. They illustrate their fact sheet and sheets are compiled into a class book.
Animals, like humans, live each day needing air, water, food, and shelter. Introduce this activity y showing pictures of various animals and have a short discussion about their homes. Next, read aloud Crinkleroot's Guide to Knowing Animal Habitats by Jim Arnosky. Finally, divide everyone into small groups to read different books. Lastly, a Kid Pix activity!
