Coral Reef Habitat Match

Different animals live in different habitats, and each animal has specifically adaptive traits that make them tailor-made for their environments. This is true on land and in the ocean. Little ones examine how various marine animals have adapted traits that help them survive in coral reefs, on the sandy ocean floor, or in the open ocean. They discuss what types of animals live in which habitats, then they color, cut, and paste each animal onto a picture of their proper ocean home. Tip: This idea could make for a great wall mural, where the children create ocean animals and their ocean homes.
