Introduction:

        Oh no! Look at all the animals wandering around our school! No one seems to know where they belong. Since we study animals in Kindergarten, we have been asked to help find out where each group of animals live, so they can be returned to the correct habitats.


Task 1:

1. Look at the animal pictures below.
 

Set A:


 

2.With the help of your partner, identify these animals.

3.Next, you and your partner will need to decide where these animals live. You will examine different animal habitats and will select the habitat in which you believe the animals belong.

4.Now click on the blue star. 

Repeat steps 1 through 4 for each set of pictures.
