In Science, the children are studying that plants and animals live in a particular habitat (for example, black bears in the forest, whales in the ocean, camels in the desert). The children will know the following:
characteristics of different environments
plants and animals found there
characteristics of the climate in different habitats (for example, sunlight, moisture, temperature)
We are now working on oceans.
