Let the kids know that there are several habitats around the world. Each animal has different needs that can only be provided for them in certain habitats. In the broader sense of it, habitats are divided into three broad categories such as Terrestrial, aquatic and arboreal habitats.

But, they don’t need to go into that area yet. For now, it is safe for them to know where each animal lives whether water, forest, hole, trees, etc.




Also let the children know that human beings help animals by providing habitats for them. Some people build dams to create new habitats for fish, some create ponds, some take in pets like cats and dogs and provide habitat for them in their homes.
