About this book
WHERE WE LIVE (Social Studies)
Tell children that the animals in this book are forest animals. Have children work together to create a forest diorama showing the kinds of homes forest animals live in. Children can use the book as a reference. Provide students with one large box or individual shoe boxes, absorbent cotton to use as the snow, construction paper, pieces of fabric, glue, and scissors. If children want, they can draw or cut out pictures of forest animals from magazines to use in this diorama. Encourage children to write sentences on index cards that describe the homes of these animals.
