Sharing the Planet: Early Years children learn about animals and their habitats

“The children were very lucky to have seagulls hatch their eggs on the roof garden, so they were able to use binoculars to observe and investigate how they fed and grew," Early Years teacher Rachel explains. "It was a very unique and fascinating way for the children to learn and begin this unit of work.”

After that this lucky kick-off, the class investigated the habitats of different animals in a more systematic way. “Children chose different habitats such as the Arctic, Antarctica, African savannah, rainforests, and oceans and found out what animals lived there, what they ate and what they needed to survive,” Rachel explains. “The class also looked at how humans are responsible for the protection of these different habitats.”
