Welcome Home, Bear: A Book of Animal Habitats
An ecosystem includes the plants and animals as well as weather and landscapes. In other words, the entire population of living things in the region like a city. Ecosystems include aquatic—marine and freshwater and terrestrial —forest, desert, grassland, and mountain. National Geographic explains a bit more about ecosystems in this article. The five major land habitats include deciduous forest, coniferous forest, savanna, tropical rain forest, desert, and tundra. And there are water habitats as well. Use these books to talk about the differences between habitats and ecosystems, who lives where, and so forth.
Do you know any kids who are curious about the amazing homes that animals build in their natural environment? Or how we design and build our own houses? We've gathered up a great collection of books, activities, apps, and websites for learning all about homes and habitats. Try pairing fiction with nonfiction books and exploring different genres like poetry and biographies and formats like graphic novels and audio books. You'll be creating your own "text sets" — collections of texts focused on a specific topic, such as homes and habitats. Reading widely in this way helps children build background knowledge , vocabulary , and comprehension skills.
