Protecting Local Habitats (KS1)

In this lesson pupils will learn the meaning of the word habitat and have an introduction to different habitats that can be found in the UK.

Overview

In this lesson pupils will learn the meaning of the word habitat and have an introduction to different habitats that can be found in the UK. Pupils will examine how living things are suited to their habitats and are thus at risk when habitat is lost. As a class they will take part in activities that are designed to introduce them to habitats in their local area before participating in social action that will support or renew habitats in their area.

By the end of the lessons pupils will:

understand the term habitat;
identify habitats in the UK and animals which are suited to them;
understand the effects of habitat loss;
get involved in local habitat renewal.
