Description:

In this outdoor activity, learners make models of homes that might protect small animals from the elements, then search living plants for real structures made by small animals. Learners examine what materials real animals use to make their homes, and consider the adaptations that allow animals to construct homes that really protect themfrom wind, wetness, and predators. Learners also explore whether certain animal homes damage animals' host plants. At the end of the activity, all animals are released to their "home" plants.
