Girls Get STEM: Marine Habitats

In this activity, students will apply what they learn about an animal’s needs and wants as they create their own marine habitat. They will then create an illustration of their own imaginary marine creature and the habitat (including food, water, and shelter) that it needs to survive.

Grades K – 2

In this activity, students will apply what they learn about an animal’s needs and wants as they create
their own marine habitat. Students will begin by participating in a picture sort that helps them
differentiate wants from needs. They will learn about the needs that a habitat must meet, and they
will further explore the concept of a habitat as they watch a video about marine animals. They will
then create an illustration of their own imaginary marine creature and the habitat (including food,
water, and shelter) that it needs to survive.
