Mrs. Heroth's first grade STEM groups were given the challenge to build a habitat for an assigned animal. This was a culminating activity of their study of habitats in science. Along with learning about habitats, students also studied the plants and animals that may live there. The STEM groups were provided with various building materials to create the habitats of a given animal. Students used the knowledge they learned to build an appropriate habitat for their animal. The activity concluded with a presentation by each group discussing the animal, habitat, and what they were representing.
