Knowledge and understanding of the World

This week we will be making Habitat Diorama's

 A habitat is the natural environment in which an animal usually lives (fish in the ocean, bears in the forest, penguins in the South Pole, etc.). Pick one animal and use reference books and the Internet to learn about your animal’s natural habitat and adaptations. After you’ve finished your research, you can create a diorama of your animal’s habitat.


A diorama is like a stage set made from a cardboard box with no lid (shoeboxes work great). To create a diorama, you turn the box on its long side and cover the background (bottom of the box) with painted or colored scenery. Then, you place figures and objects in front of the background like characters and props on a stage.
