Ideas for our Habitat project for Mater Christi's first grade

  • Give each student a piece of paper and crayons.
    • Have them fold the paper in half vertically and then fold in half again horizontally
    • Then they will open the paper and four sections
  • Next the students will have an opportunity to draw and color four different habitats, including one or two animals that would live in the habitat, what they would eat and drink
  • Then break the students into groups of 2 -4 depending on class size
    • They will compare and contrast their visions of habitats
  • Then the students will come back together and view premade environments
  • The students will be evenly divided into groups so that each group receives one environment
    • The students will work together to decide what types of animals live in their environment, how they live, and why they live there
  • Then each group will share their decisions with the other groups
  • As they explain their ideas groups will fill in handouts with various questions about types of habitats and what animals would live best there

Materials Needed

  • Plain 8.5x11 Paper- one piece for each student
  • Variety of different colored crayons
  • Premade Habitat Environments

Handout Ideas-- have them write which animals belong in which habitat, what they eat, what they drink, why they live there, where and when they sleep
