Habitats by Peter Riley


Habitats by Peter Riley

Habitats, both small and large, form fascinating topics for children to study and enjoy. From the micro-habitats in the backgarden, to the deserts and jungles around the planet, children find studying the animals, plants, structures, and conservation of habitats a rewarding and enlightening experience. There are numerous opportunities to cover this topic using a cross-curricular approach, and also lots of chances for large whole-school projects covering a day or even a week. Themes in this book are as follows: 1. Plants the producers of food, (factors that help them survive in a habitat and form the 'scaffolding' for it); 2. Minibeasts the major types - (earthworm, snail, slug, insect beetle, butterfly, moth, flies, ant, spiders, centipedes, millipedes); 3. Plants as habitats (what lives on them - especially trees); 4. Herbivores (from habitats around the world); 5. Carnivores (from habitats around the world); 6. Food chains (from habitats around the world); 7. Decomposers (plus concept of ecosystem); 8. Habitat conservation; 9. World sustainability (Conserving the 'world habitat')
