Need for lesson - Animal Habitat Sorting (MontessoriPrintShop.com)
can be pasted onto an index file card for quick reference
We learned the names of some biomes found on the earth, such as deserts and forests. A biome is a region with a particular climate where plant and animals live. When we talk about the animals that live in a particular area, we can say it is the animals habitat. A pond and a tide pool can be an animal habitat. The tropical rain forest is one habitat that we talked a little bit about when we visited South America. We have learned that the large bodies of water on the earth are oceans. Mammals and fish are some of the animals that you can find living in an ocean habitat. When we visited North America we talked about some of the animals that live in the Arctic Circle, like polar bears, this is their habitat. What kind of animals do you think live in deserts?
Let's look at some pictures of animals and decide which habitat they live in. Demonstrate sorting cards.
Kind of Animals - These were from a science activity book. I colored them and made them into a work.
Animal Habitats - I asked my husband to draw me pictures of different habitats. The children can place the animals on the habitat cards they belong to.

Need for lesson - Animal name cards in Spanish and the animal to match it. I made these cards to go along with each animal.

El gato is the cat, el gato is the cat
