This week we will be learning all about Minibeasts and their habitats.
What is a habitat?
A habitat is the home of an animal or a plant. Almost every place on Earth—from the hottest desert to the coldest ice pack—is a habitat for some kinds of animals and plants. Most habitats include a community of animals and plants along with water, oxygen, soil or sand, and rocks. Have a look at the PowerPoint below about minibeasts and their habitats
Activity – Now, lets see what you can remember! Cut out the minibeasts and their names and place them in their natural habitats
