    Overview: Students will use their background knowledge about habitats to complete a K-W-L chart.

    Estimated Time:  40 minutes

    Explanation of Activity/ Assignment:

    Quick Things to Know: Parents may also encourage their child to read books on Epic about habitats to build on their background knowledge. These have been assigned and can be found under the heading assignments on the Epic app.


    1. Think about books we have read on habitats (forests, deserts, or oceans).
    2. Think:
      • What is a habitat?
      • How does an animal use its habitat?
      • Students will use this knowledge to complete Habitats Booklet page 2
    3. Using the Habitats Booklet (emailed on 4-6-20) complete the first 2 columns on “What I know about Habitats” and “What I want to know about Habitats”.
      • Students should bullet their ideas
      • There is an example below
      • Try to come up with at least 2-3 for each of the first two columns
      • The third column “What I learned about habitats” will be completed at the end of the unit
    4. If your child is having trouble with ideas, I have assigned a book on Epic.


    What I know about Habitats- An animal has a habitat.

    What I want to know about Habitats- How does an animal use its habitat?


    • Use Habitats Notebook p 2 (sent via email on 4/6/20)
    • Epic: Animal Habitats by Julie Lundgren – (assigned in Epic)
    • You may also read other habitat books in the Epic collection
