Insect Habitat Webby: David Alexander

Book ChapterDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

Students, in this activity, create a list of living and nonliving things found within a field habitat and discuss their relationships, through the creation of a simulated web using a ball of yarn. At the end, students will be able to describe the living and non-living components found in an insect habitat and identify their roles and relationships in a food web. Students will be able to understand the interdependence of all life forms, including humans (i.e., dependence of human life on the resources of the planet and on a healthful environment).

This is a great activity to get kids out of the classroom and engaged in learning! In this lesson, students explore living and non-living things as they explore an insect habitat. The book chapter includes reproducible habitat cards and activity sheets. This is a great activity that I look forward doing this spring!
