Students analyze fiction and nonfiction writings to discover the importance of animal habitat preservation. After defining habitats and biomes, they create a list of these environments using books they have read.

Using shoe boxes, students create dioramas depicting their chosen habitats containing various environmental factors such as food, plants, and animals.
