The places where we find living things are called habitats. A habitat gives animals shelterand food, and gives plants a place to grow.
Almost every place on Earth is a habitat for some kinds of animals and plants. A pond is a habitat. A forest is another habitat. Different habitats often contain different living things. This is because the conditions in each habitat are different.
Habitats can be dry or wet, hot or cold. Animals live in habitats that have the right conditions for them.
To know if a habitat is cold or hot, we can measure its temperature with a thermometer. In science, we measuse temperature in degrees Celsius (C°)
The tiny animals that you find in habitats are called minibeasts. They can live in water, like in ponds, or in dry places like under stones. They can live in damp places like under fallen leaves on the ground. You catch minibeasts using a pooter or a pitfall trap to study more about habitats.
After studying about them, we have to release the minibeasts back where we found them.
