Habitats: Grassland (Prairie)

Habitats: Grassland (Prairie) - learning idea

Prairie

We were learning about the grassland habitat, but we found out the prairie, and they are very different, even both are grassland. We studied separately.


What you need

  • Books and videos about the prairie
  • Animals in the prairie images from the internet or your drawings
  • Color pencils, crayons or markers for drawing
  • Letter size paper for drawing the prairie scenery
  • Scissors for cutting out the animal images

I recommend using actual animal images, not the clip-arts, because most kids have never seen these animals except at the zoo.


Activity Ideas

Idea 1: After learning about the prairie from videos and books, draw the scenery.

Idea 2: Print out the small size of animal images from the internet, and cut them out. Place on the prairie scenery drawing.
