We are re-visiting the Planet Earth dvd series this month to learn about both animals (Ella) and habitats (Ivy).
Overview of Planet Earth
Overview of biomes
Ivy has copy of the biomes sheet and matches the episode to the corresponding category. We look it up on maps to see where in the world they are located.
Planet Earth animal guide
Here's a great animal guide to go with the series. Ella is specifically watching for the different animals in each episode and we discuss how it is adapted to that particular habitat.
