Students will explore several habitats such as forests, meadows, vernal pools, or stream habitats, and compare the plant and animal communities found in each.
Discover the connections between plants and animals as you search for food and shelter sources and learn how changes to a habitat can impact the species that live there.
Locations: Any Central wildlife sanctuary, your schoolyard, or a suitable community greenspace.
