Description

What our Habitats lesson plan includes

Lesson Objectives and Overview: Habitats teaches students about the many pieces that make up a specific kind of environment. Students will discover how many different kinds of habitats there are. They will be able to provide examples and identify some of the animals that call these different settings home.

The lesson contains two pages of content. The first page explains to students what a habitat is and what it includes. It lists four kinds of habitats: grasslands, deserts, rainforests, and temperate forests. Students will learn some facts about each of these environments. For instance, they will learn that deserts are dry and receive very little rain. However, not all deserts are hot.

The next page lists some more habitats, including mountains, polar regions, coral reefs, and city and farm areas. Such settings are home to a variety of animals and plant life. Students will learn how diverse these different places can be. They will discover just how unique various parts of the world are.

MATCH THE ANIMAL ACTIVITY WORKSHEET

For the activity, students will cut out the nine labels on the worksheet and place them under the images of each habitat. Next, they will cut out the animals and place them with the picture that matches where they live. There are three animals for each environment. You can see an answer key at the end of the lesson plan to keep track of where the animals should go. You may choose to have students work with a partner or in small groups for this activity.

HABITATS PRACTICE WORKSHEET

There are two sections on the practice worksheet. For the first part, students must read 12 descriptions and match them to the correct term from the word bank. There are only 12 terms, so they will each word only once. The second part requires students to fill in the blanks in a short paragraph. Students will need to use what they learned in the lesson as there is not word bank to reference.

Very engaging lesson and activities!

The presentation combined well presented information and a beautiful photo for each habitat. I appreciated this lesson pointing out that cities and farms are also habitats. I supplemented it with a YouTube video showing various habitats, (including Tundra habitat not described in this lesson.) The Habitats materials are a good basis for further exploration of the flora and fauna of each habitat.
