Science - Microhabitats

A micro-habitat is a tiny habitat where living things are. A micro-habitat could be under a log, in a flower pot or maybe in-between two rocks. Have a look at the powerpoint below to find out more about microhabitats. 

Can you go out and find a microhabitat? This could be inside or outside your home depending on which microhabitat you choose. 

What living things can you find in your microhabitat? - make a list of what you find.

What dead things can you find in your microhabitat?

What things can you find in your microhabitat that have never been alive?
