We are learning about improving an environment.
We can improve an environment.
A bush garden with lots of habitats
Some gardens are great at providing homes for animals. The best habitat gardens have leaf litter, lots of plants, rocks, logs and water.
Go outside to a garden or a local park.
Use the Habitat score card to rate the area.
What did you find a lot of?
What do you think the environment needs more of?
What kind of animals might live here?
Planting a shrub for habitat
It's easy to make a garden better for animals. You just need to create more habitats.
With the help of your parents or teacher choose a small garden you would like to improve.
Plant some plants.
Add rocks, leaf litter and logs.
Add water – make a birdbath out of an old bowl.
