To understand what a habitat is

In this set of lessons we have an introduction to habitats. In this lesson, we identify different habitats and begin to understand why different animals live in different habitats. Put your knowledge into practice by creating a habitat for your teddy, thinking about what animal they are and what shelter, food and climate they would need to survive in the wild.
