Animal Habitats Activity – Freshwater, Grasslands, Forest, Ocean

How to teach Animal Habitats

Using this Animal Habitats Activity - Freshwater, Grasslands, Forest, Ocean, students sort animal pictures into four different habitats- Freshwater, Grasslands, Forest, or Ocean.

This sort helps students make connections between the animals and their habitats. They are able to determine qualities that each animal must have to be successful in that habitat.

Identify an animal’s habitat by sorting the animal picture cards onto the various habitat mats. To play a game with multiple players, deal picture cards to each player. Spin the spinner to land on a habitat. If you have an animal card in your hand that lives in that habitat, discard it on the mat. If you do not have a matching animal, the next player spins. Players take turns until one player has gotten rid of all of their cards. After sorting, draw a picture of a habitat and the animals that live there.
