What others are saying about this resource:

"I posted the reading passages and posters around the classroom and printed off the habitat recording sheets and made a packet out of them. My kids rotated around the room as habitat explorers recording data about the habitats. They LOVED it! They were so engaged!" --Victoria W.

"AMAZING resource, jam-packed with lots of great material! I have used these materials to post around the room and have students moving around to certain areas to learn more about each habitat and then regroup and share their findings with other group members!" --Kathryn

"Thank you!! An awesome resource that can be used independently or as a supplement. Great for differentiation. I purchased the Animal Adaptations Nonfiction Resource Pack as well and recommend both." --Robin

These posters make an excellent bulletin board display in a snap!


Have students read the passages about each habitat. The passages are written with questions and scenes for students to connect and color. Pages can be stapled at the top to make one large Habitas booklet.

Make a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes and the types of plants and animals that live there may change. Examples of environmental changes could include changes in land characteristics, water distribution, temperature, food, and other organisms. Assessment is limited to a single environmental change. Assessment does not include the greenhouse effect or climate change.
Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing. Examples of cause and effect relationships could be plants that have larger thorns than other plants may be less likely to be eaten by predators; and, animals that have better camouflage coloration than other animals may be more likely to survive and therefore more likely to leave offspring.
Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats. Emphasis is on the diversity of living things in each of a variety of different habitats. Assessment does not include specific animal and plant names in specific habitats.
Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all. Examples of evidence could include needs and characteristics of the organisms and habitats involved. The organisms and their habitat make up a system in which the parts depend on each other.
