This lesson addressed two questions: 1) What is a wildlife refuge? 2) What is a habitat? During the lesson the students learned about the habitats of animals on loan to Barrett from the Virginia Museum of Natural History. They practiced using tally marks to keep track of evidence they found relating to habitat (food, water, shelter, space) for each animal. The students also learned about wildlife refuges and habitat from the NWRS coloring book given to each child in our school.
