Dear First Grade Friends,

            I am so glad you made it to this webquest! I need your help! There was a huge storm and it
    blew the animals into another habitat! Will you be able to help me find the right habitat for the
    animals? You will need to think about what each animal needs to survive in its’ habitat and what
    its’ habitat looks like. I hope that you can use the websites I found help you! Please hurry because
    the animals need to go home!
                                Thank you!

Congratulations! You have helped all the animals reach
their homes!

We learned that each habitat is very different and that
certain animals can only live in certain habitats! If they are
not in their homes, they will not survive!

Hopefully this gave you some ideas for selecting your
animal for your animal project and diorama.

My name is Miss Stephens and I teach first grade at Longswamp
Elementary School in the Brandywine Heights Area School District.

During this activity, first grade students will be able to:
• identify each habitat.
• match the animal to its correct habitat.
• click on links to websites that will give them sufficient information.
• utilize the Internet to access videos, blogs, photographs and activities.
• respond with a personal response about which habitat they live in and why.

Standards we will meet:
Biological Sciences:
       3.3.4 Know that characteristics are inherited and, thus,
        offspring closely resemble their parents.
            Identify characteristics for animal and plant survival in
             different climates.
       3.3.4 Know the similarities and differences of living things.
            Know that some organisms have similar external
             characteristics (e.g., anatomical characteristics;
             appendages, type of covering, body segments) and that
             similarities and differences are related to environmental
