Science KS1 / KS2: Identifying the natural habitats of animals

Science monkey superhero Dr Brain and a team of young scientists identify some of the natural habitats of different animals.

There are several different habitats all over the world which provide the basic needs for different types of animal.

Animals are suited to their own habitat, and can find food and shelter there when needed.

The Mad Lab team must correctly send all the animals in the lab back to their own habitat - can they do it?

This clip is from the series Ultimate Brain: Mad Lab.

Teacher Notes

Pupils could use the clip to draw a diagram of the different stages of the life cycle of a frog.

They could then look closer at the animal at each stage and describe how it looks and changes over time.

Curriculum Notes

These films are suitable for teaching Science at Key Stage 1 and 2 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and 1st and 2nd Level in Scotland.
