All living things have basic needs for survival – food, water, shelter and air. This program will explore various living things including both plants and animals, their natural habitats, and learn the important role they play in our world. Students will discover what the basic needs are for all living things in urban, rural and natural habitats, and how we can help them survive. This unit aims to bring student prior knowledge to a conscious level, making explicit all the basic needs of living things. Students use the experience to draw a living thing and identify how they would meet its needs.
