Sinclair Laird: Animal Habitats

Learning about different animals’ natural habitats helps us learn about what their needs are and how we can preserve the environment for their homes.
When we look at a tree log, at first it might not look like much, but upon closer inspection, we see that it is an apartment building for bugs and small animals. And then a feeding ground for larger animals.
Once students picked the animal habitats they were going to create, they watched videos about their specific animals and their homes to get inspiration. Using clay and other materials, such as moss and shells, students used what they learned to create a 3D habitat!  Can you guess which animal habitat each student created?
