What are we learning?
In this unit, we will be learning about organisms living in their environments (habitats). There are three environments in Utah: forests, deserts, & wetlands. Students will learn about the climate and elevation of each environment. Students will also learn how to identify each of these habitats and which animals and plants can be found in each one.
