This is a unit focused on a TEK from the Curriculum Framework for the STAAR Alternate. Students will understand that animals live in specific environments called habitats and that each habitat has its own characteristics. Throughout the unit, students will learn about five different habitats that animals live in. At the end of the unit, students will create a mural of a habitat of their choosing, including at least three elements. Students will then have to describe the elements of the mural.
