Habitat Project

 

 

For the past few weeks, we have been learning about different habitats.  A habitat is a place that an animal lives. It provides the animal with food, water and shelter. There are many different kinds of habitats around the world from forests to grasslands and from mountain slopes to deserts. Different habitats are home to different animals.  

 

Each student is asked to construct a diorama of a habitat.  Dioramas are scenes typically constructed inside a small box.  This project will show a representation of a natural environment and can include models, drawings, figures etc of plants, animals, shelters, and weather conditions of your habitat.  

 

Children should use the knowledge learned in class when thinking about how their natural environment should look.   The diorama must include a minimum of four different animals and at least one plant from your habitat.   Students should use their mini books for reference when creating their diorama. Feel free to add more details!

Project Due Date is Wednesday, March 27th.  Any diorama brought to school after March 27th will loss 5 points for each day the project is late.

Materials:  

Feel free to use any materials you have around the house to construct your project.  You will need a shoebox or similar sized small box. Other useful materials might include:     construction paper or card stock, paint/paint brushes, crayons or colored pencils,  scissors, fabric scraps, glue, tape, colored tissue paper, play dough, and magazine photos.  Be as creative as possible using materials you already have at home.

 

Guidelines:

  1.    Add a background to = the box’s interior- this is a good place to show day or night, and what the weather conditions might be within the habitat.

 

  1.    Draw, clip or print out pictures of the animals and plants that live in your environment.  You may wish to sculpt them using play dough or you might have small animal toys at home. If you need a rock or some twigs, feel free to search the yard.  

 

  1.  Finishing touches – Add additional details in the foreground such as chunks of ice for a tundra,  grass in the prairie,, sand in the desert, acorns on the forest floor, insects in the rainforest. Use your creative juices and have fun!
