All About Habitats

Brrr!  It is cold this morning here in Indiana. 45 degrees!  Now I LOVE fall, but we went from the 90’s to the 40’s within a week.  Now I just hope that fall sticks around for a long time and winter is not coming too quickly. 
Anyways, this last week, we have been learning all about the habitats.  1st graders absolutely love learning about animals!
We started off by learning the definition of a habitat.  Then, each day we learned about a different habitat.
We read about each new habitat and highlighted the important information to answer the questions.  This was their first introduction to using text evidence, so we did these completely together.  They were able to use highlighters, so that’s always a bonus 😉
The students couldn’t wait to see which habitat they would be learning about next!  They loved seeing the pictures of the animals from each habitat.

I am REALLY excited about this new packet!
This 100 page unit introduces the temperate deciduous forest, rainforest, desert, ocean, polar region, and wetlands habitat.  Each habitat includes an informational page along with comprehension questions that are perfect for using text evidence.  You will also find a full color animal sheet for each habitat and animal writing opportunities.  We wrapped up our unit on Friday by completing our Habitats booklet that is included in the packet as well.
If you head over to my TpT store, you can download a sample of the packet.
Now, I’m off to grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte (decaf, since I’m pregnant) and go apple picking with my family! 
Happy Fall Y’all!
