Description

Explore habitats with our fun Habitats Lesson Plan.  After successfully completing and studying the interactive materials, students will be able to define habitat and give examples of different habitats, as well as identify some animals living in each habitat.  This lesson also encourages idea and experience sharing to foster a collaborative learning environment as students develop communication skills and build confidence.

Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction Sample:

  1. List and display student responses to this question: What are some of the things found in your home to help you live and survive each day?
  2. Allow for discussion. Ask students if they were in a forest or in the mountains living, would they be able to use the same things. Ask why not and allow for discussion.
  3. Ask students if they can think of another word for “home.” Lead the discussion and responses to the term “habitat.”
  4. Distribute the Habitat content pages and read along with the students, stopping to give further explanation and information where necessary.
  5. Allow students to talk about some of the animals they may have seen in the zoo or on TV. Tell students the zoo is another habitat for some animals in captivity, just like a bird in a cage, or fish in a tank.
