Creating a wildlife habitat can provide a home for a variety of local wildlife from the smallest insects and spiders to birds, reptiles, mammals and frogs. These habitats can provide a sanctuary for species that have been displaced through urbanisation, as built structures replace natural areas. The Vision activity determined the needs of your local species to survive. This information will be used to design the perfect habitat to support these species in your local area. This learning activity is the third part of a sequence of 5 individual learning activities focused on creating a wildlife habitat. The order of these learning activities are: research, vision, design, planting and monitoring and care. OUTCOMES of this activity are for children to: design a wildlife habitat for local species; understand the relationships between urban, rural and natural habitats; aim to create wildlife corridors to enable animals to move between habitats; enjoy being active and productive outdoors and build their social and teamwork skills; and understand the steps involved in creating wildlife habitats.
