Animal habitats is a common topic in science, and this post includes a variety of resources and ideas you can use to build a meaningful unit for your students.  Kids love animals and have a natural curiosity about them.

To the right, I’ve included a theme sheet with a variety of activities including habitat mobiles from Fabulous 2 and 3, Polar Region Snowglobes from Science Penguin, Animal Design Project from Horizons, and a Desert Habitat freebie from Simply Second. They all look like loads of fun.  Just click the image to download a copy. The animal habitat resources are linked in the pdf for easy download.

This blog post is all about animal habitats. If you're working on a science unit on this topic, check out all the resources here for a cross curricular unit your kids will enjoy.

Book Suggestions for Animal Habitats

First of all, let’s start with suggested reading. For animal habitat book suggestions, I have listed a few that I’ve enjoyed using. I am a huge fan of the National Geographic books for kids, and I have also found a few of the Green Light Readers nonfiction worth included too.  Here are a few other collections that I found as I searched for this post.  They are linked pins, so you can repin them to your own boards too.

Interactive notebooks are quite popular, and these cute resources would work well in your notebooks. The first organizer would be helpful with the animal theme and research. If you’re focused on Rainforest animals, then the foldable to the right is perfect!  To download, just click the images.

The last resource I want to share is the cute frogs craftivity. It is great for sequencing and life cycles.
