Students are divided into groups, one for each habitat: rainforest, desert, and ocean. The teacher gives the students notecards with a picture and name of an animal that they will act out in their small group’s habitat. Students interact with each other in the form of predators, prey, or family within their group’s habitat. After- wards, each group will present their habitat performance to the class. Students can identify the habitat and animal relationships. Next, students will complete a writing activity where they will learn about phonics by crafting animal sounds into onomatopoeia words. The class will create a digital ABC book of animal drawings and recorded animal sounds.
