Habitat in a Backpack

Designed for 3rd graders, Habitat in a Backpack is an interactive set of activities that helps students learn about the habitats around them. It includes instructions for six different activities that engage students in learning about the habitat around them. The activities are easy to do, and the supplies are included in the backpack. Activities can be completed in any available greenspace. Greenspaces can be found at your school, sites within walking distance, BCCD sites, other parks or at home.
