Habitat in a Bucket

What is a habitat? Students find out firsthand by exploring a “habitat in a bucket”
that includes outdoor habitat items (e.g., leaves, branches, snails, etc.) that have
been collected and brought into the classroom. Students use the exploration as an
inquiry starting point. They make observations, generate questions of interest and
design and conduct their own investigations. Typical investigations might focus on
plant and animal interactions, food chains, physical and behavioral adaptations of
living things and biodiversity.
