INTRODUCTION

What is a habitat? We know that it is a special place for something to live. But what important things does this place have in order for it to be called a habitat? In what habitat do certain plants and animals live? Each group will study one special habitat, and you will learn the answers to these questions and many more. You will use this webquest page to take an electronic fieldtrip to each habitat. On each trip you will learn new and interesting facts that you will share with the other groups.
