Animals and their Homes

One early math (and literacy) skill we can encourage is the ability to match and classify objects. Being able to match and classify means that children are learning to describe relationships between objects, places or people. Sometimes it means looking closely to determine whether something IS a match, or it might mean deciding why something is NOT a match.

For example, an elephant is big and doesn’t have wings so it’s going to need some space and it won’t be able to live in the sky. Even if a child has never seen an elephant before or has never read a picture book with an elephant in it, they’ll still be able to reason this out (unless they’re thinking of Dumbo)!¬†Much of our future knowledge is based on prior knowledge which is why reading to young children is so important. It’s stories like The Ugly Duckling that teach children how much ducks like ponds!

Sometimes our ability to match and classify needs prior knowledge. For example, if we look at a crab we could assume it might like the desert because it’s got everything it needs to dig awesome holes. So, this is when real life experiences, books and discussions become important. While there might be crabs in deserts (I’m not a desert expert), hanging out around the rock pools at the beach seems much more likely!

Printable Pictures of Animals and their Homes

This fun activty is better than a animals and their homes worksheetsb, because it is in color and is reusable!

Ask your child to look at the animal and the 3 habitat options. Have them name the animal (they might need help) and chat about what the animal looks like and how well they might be able to survive in the different habitats.

Now mark the habitat your child believes is best suited to the animal. If any questions get raised, do an internet search if possible to encourage your child to look for answers to their own questions.
