New! My Favorite Animal and Me
2nd - 4th
Students research their favorite animal. They create their own fact book to share about their animal and their habitat.
Using Technology to Design Animal Habitats
Students study the relationship between an animal and where it lives. In this habitats instructional activity students research to obtain data and create a professional report.
An animal habitat is like the neighborhood where animals live. It's a place they can get everything they need to survive; air, food, shelter, and water. Explore animal habitats with your first graders. In small groups, they create a habitat diorama for an animal they are familiar with, such as a pet. After completing the project they share their habitats with the whole group. Note: The lesson is lacking, in that the children are not learning about animals living outside of the home.
Hanging in the Habitat: Animal Habitats in the School Yard
Seventh graders create a puzzle for their classmates to complete. They identify the characteristics of three animal habitats. They write an essay on how to protect the areas from destruction.
Animal and Plant Habitats
Second graders write and illustrate a story. In this habitats lesson, 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.
African Animals in 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.
Activity Plan 4-5: Animal Habitats
Students investigate the world around them with this animal habitat activity. In this early childhood lesson plan, students create murals depicting animal habitats to encourage the development of science, geography, creative-thinking, and social skills.
What Animals Need to Live
Fourth graders read "Habitat: What Animals Need to Live" then create a Venn diagram for herbivore, omnivore, and carnivore. In this animal survival lesson, 4th graders determine where different animals need to live depending on what they eat, and summarize what elements are needed for survival (food, water, shelter, space).
Students explore animal lifestyles by researching their characteristics. In this animal habitat lesson plan, 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.
Explore the World through Habitat
Open a world of discovery with habitat-related lessons.
Let's Go Fact Fishing!
Students work in pairs to research animals in the ocean. They use the Internet, encyclopedias, and resource books to complete an information sheet with a photo of the animal and three facts. They present their mini-reports to the class.
