Investigating Living Things and Their Habitats

Animals can be found everywhere and they all have their own needs to help them survive in their habitat.

Why not plan some activities outside and explore the area of a nearby pond, or take a look in the playground and see if any insects or animals can be found? Afterwards, you could ask students to consider where the creatures live and the type of habitat they live in.
