Over the past few weeks in science, Year 4 has been extremely busy learning about the many different habitats around the world from forests to grasslands and from mountain slopes to deserts. They have learned that a habitat is a place that an animal lives. It provides the animal with food, water and shelter. The students have also learned that different habitats are home to different animals that live well together because they all do things to help keep the whole habitat healthy and in balance.

To help the students have a deeper understanding of the different types of habitats and how animals have adapted to their environment we visited Beijing Zoo and Aquarium.

Due to their thick coats and massive paws, the students saw how brown bears and polar bears are perfectly adapted to live in snow and below freezing temperatures. Moreover, the students were amazed to see what graceful swimmers turtles are with their streamlined bodies and flipper like limbs that navigated effortlessly around the aquarium. They also saw that when they are active, turtles must swim to the surface to breathe every few minutes.  Everyone had a fantastic day filled with fun and learning!
