Habitats for Kids

In our Homeschool Science this year we’ve been using Christian Kids Explore Biology. I love all the hands on science activities it proves as well as it’s ease of use. It is perfect to use together as a family by focusing on hands on activities with younger learners and adding in the worksheets and more advance projects for older kids.

In Unit 1 of Christian Kids Explore Biology we were learning about Biomes and Taxonomy. That can be a hard concept for kids to grasp and commit to memory. So in my quest to provide a fun, learning environment for my kids I came up with a game that would help them!

Taxonomy Hands on Science for Homeschool Kids

Using the Animal Fact Cards from the FREE Printable Habitat Adventure Game, my kids started sorting animals by their taxonomy.

It was a great hands on way for kids to understand Taxonomy.
