Habitat Hideout

Different kinds of fish prefer different types of habitat. In this lesson, students learn to identify preferred fish habitats to help them locate fish “hideouts” when they go fishing. In groups, students create lake and stream habitat murals showing areas of structure and, on habitat maps, show where various fish species might prefer to live. A relay game helps reinforce the concepts they’ve learned.
