This Science lesson aims at underlining the importance of environmental protection of species’ habitats and the link with a sustainable way of living.
Students will learn and explore the five major habitats found in the world: aquatic, desert, forest, grassland and tundra. Finally, students will produce posters, infographics, comics or similar using Europeana Collections resources. Moreover, they will be given an introduction on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Like the World’s Greatest Explorers
This learning scenario gives students the opportunity to feel like Marco Polo, Magellan and many other great explorers. Working in groups, pupils are invited to identify the habitats of some species of plants or animals. Also, they have to recognise the five major habitats found in the world.
In the end, each group needs to produce posters, infographics, puzzles, comics or similar using Europeana Collections resources. They have to present key features, pros and cons about given types of habitat. After that, each group has to present final work to their classmates.

This is a great Learning Scenario. I really liked the fact that it promotes the importance of environmental protection of species’ habitats and links with a sustainable way of living. This is a topic which we should expose the students to more to help in raising awareness about how much we should care for our environment. Well done! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your kind feedback!
I agree with Brendan on the importance of raising awareness about the conservation of species’ habitats.
We all know how pollution, resource exploitation, deforestation, and climate change are destroying ecosystems and natural habitats. Educating our students about the conservation of nature means that we are preserving our planet for future generations. Well done Elena for this interesting LS and thanks for sharing.
Thank you for your kind feedback!
A great topic choice. Our students should be aware of the issues tackled in your learning scenario! This learning scenario can also be done by using online teaching. Microsoft Teams or Skype can be easily used to implement this learning scenario while using Padlet/Mentimeter/AnswerGarden to gather feedback from the students. Thank you for sharing and well done!
Thank you for your kindness!
I will use these resources with my 4th graders in distance learning, thanks for sharing!
This is a great LS. I really liked the fact that it promotes the importance of environmental protection of habitats. In my LSs I want to combine Technology and ecology, I think they are very important together !!! Thanks for sharing!!!
Thank you and I am glad you find it useful. Keep me posted about your LS.
