Having Fun with Habitats

Learners 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. In cooperative learning groups (first and fourth grades), they design KWL charts for polar bears and penguins. Using shoe boxes, students create dioramas depicting their chosen habitats containing various environmental factors such as food, plants, and animals.
