Description

Hey Kat and Squirrel Fans! We've created, for your teaching pleasure, another super fun science unit. This one is about diversity in the Earth's habitats.

First you and your class will build your background knowledge and gain a common understanding of habitat vocabulary and the diversity of life within habitats. Then you'll go on a magic carpet ride with Kat and Squirrel to visit some of these habitats and 'show what you know' through dramatization. The lessons wrap up with a fun "baseball card" like design activity using common house plants as the focus of each card.

This product includes:
