Home Sweet Home: Habitats Along Our Route

This week on the river we explore not just habitats but microhabitats as well, and since we are in the Atchafalaya Delta, the last habitat of our trip, we learn how and why it is growing.

Grades: 3-9

Supplemental work:

  • Draw your favorite habitat, then draw microhabitats found in your broader habitat type. Which organisms use the microhabitats?
  • What habitats can be found near you. Label all the habitat types in your state on a map.
