Habitat Exploration 3-5

Students will survey several habitats - woodland, wetland, meadow, and edge habitats - to explore how each habitat meets the needs of the animals that live there, why some animals may thrive in one habitat and not survive in another, and how changes to a habitat can affect who lives there.

Also available and recommended: schedule a classroom visit before your field trip.
