- Describe at least three different habitats.
- List a variety of animals that live in a certain habitat.
- Give examples of how a habitat meets the needs of an animal living there.
In this lesson, students play a game. Each classroom corner represents a habitat. After selecting an animal card, students have to move to the matching habitat while acting out the animal displayed on their card. By explaining why they selected a certain habitat, students realize that a habitat is a place that helps an animal survive.
