In science, we are learning that scientists use the term "habitat," to refer to the place where an animal or plant can best survive, or live. In order to survive, plants and animals have to be able to meet their needs. They need food, shelter/space, water, and air. As we move into the lab portion of this unit, you may want to refresh your memory about your favorite habitat. If you'd like to do some individual research on your favorite habitat, plant, or animal, check out the link. It has bookelts, facts, coloring pages, maps, information about adaptations, and much more!
