An ecosystem includes the plants and animals as well as weather and landscapes. In other words, the entire population of living things in the region like a city. Ecosystems include aquatic—marine and freshwater and terrestrial —forest, desert, grassland, and mountain. National Geographic explains a bit more about ecosystems in this article. The five major land habitats include deciduous forest, coniferous forest, savanna, tropical rain forest, desert, and tundra. And there are water habitats as well. Use these books to talk about the differences between habitats and ecosystems, who lives where, and so forth.
By Steven Hicks. Most children have a limited conceptual understanding of animals. While they may know the names of some of their favorites, they know little about what distinguishes one group of animals from another. These books help children to see similarities and differences between animals and introduce their habits and habitats. Classroom Tip: Children can compare their eye to the eye of a squid or their hand to the hand of a gorilla.
