KS1 Animal Habitats LEGO School Workshop

Explore the fascinating world of animal habitats with our engaging KS1 Animal Habitats LEGO workshop. This hands-on school workshop allows children to discover and learn about the various animal groups, different types of habitats and the animals that live in them through creative LEGO building activities.

Animal Habitats Learning Objective

In our KS1 Animal Habitats workshop, students will understand the concept of habitats and their importance to animals. They will identify various types of habitats such as forests, deserts, and oceans, and the animals that live in each.

Students will learn about different animal groups and how these groups are associated with specific habitats. Additionally, they will explore how animals adapt to their habitats for survival, enhancing their knowledge through interactive and creative LEGO building activities.

Animal Habitats Learning Outcome

By the end of this KS1 workshop, students will be able to define and describe various animal habitats and their importance. They will identify specific animals, classify them into different animal groups, and explain how these animals are adapted to their environments.

Additionally, students will demonstrate their understanding of animal groups and habitats by building a LEGO model of an animal and its corresponding habitat.
