Habitat Game

We recently borrowed a video on habitats from the library.  It was really well made, upbeat and engaging and there were even little quizzes after each segment which L enjoyed.  It gave me the idea to make this habitat game.
Such a simple concept but really effective in learning about and discussing different habitats.  I used five different coloured pieces of card stock to make the habitats and then put labels on them.  I printed out different animals from Google images for each habitat onto card stock.

I made up a bunch of different cards which say things like:
Place an animal in the tundra habitat
Place an animal in its habitat
Which is the only continent that doesn't have a grassland habitat?
What are two types of water habitat?
It's a fun way to learn and talk about different characteristics of habitats and their inhabitants.

This is my first time commenting. I do enjoy your blog. Would you be willing to share the name of the video on habitats?

That is such a great idea! Would you be adding the printable for your game ? I hope so ! :) Thanks for sharing.

Hi CJ I'm afraid all I could find in the library catalogue was that it is called "All About Habitats" which is not very helpful.

Umm Umamah sorry I'm afraid I won't be able to share the pritable but it's super easy to do a Google search for the animals and print them out yourslef!
