Week 2 and 3
Living things and their habitats
This week, we are learning about habitats. Think about all the different places that animals live. What animals live in the countryside? In your garden? In a pond? Do all creatures live in the same place?
Watch the youtube clip to learn more about habitats. Then think about micro and macro habitats. Can you sort the habitats that surround you into macro and micro?
Australia has many habitats that are home to many different species of wildlife. There are some species of animals that are only found in Australian habitats. These animals are called 'endemic'.
I would like you to identify the different habitats found in Australia and label them on the map in the resources section. As an extension, you could find out what species of animals live in the different habitats and highlight any endemic animals that you find! There are some suggested web sites in the resources to help you too.
