Habitats

This Habitats handout & reference also includes:

Explore six different habitats—wetlands, rainforest, savannah, desert, city, and cultivated land—to determine which habitat factors (food, water, shelter, and space) are high, medium, or low in each. Learners also use maps of Africa to determine which habitats would be most suitable for cheetahs.
