Science – Animals and Their Habitats

In this lesson, the children were given a task to create a habitat for a monkey, a mouse and a bear using the blue construction blocks from the playground and be able to explain their reasoning for this. The children worked as a team to create their habitats and they were created and constructed with lots of thought and discussion. For example, one group created a cave-like shelter for a bear with a stream beside it so that the bear’s habitat was near water for them to drink and wash themselves.
