What grade do students learn about habitats?
When I first started teaching, habitats was a first grade focus. Now, as our science standards are shifting, habitats and the interdependence of ecosystems is a second grade unit and one my students enjoy.
What do you need in a habitat?
All species of plants and animals— including people—need a proper combination of food, water, cover, and space to survive and reproduce. Together, these elements make up a “habitat.” Without habitat, a species cannot survive.
