Living things live in an area called their habitat. For us that will include our homes, schools, workplaces, places we play, eat out, shop, and visit. We need these places to enjoy our lives and so we include them within our habitat. All animals have a natural habitat, it’s where we find them.

In this group of Minutes you will find many different animals and sounds from their habitats; what they like to eat, how they socialise with others.

Listen carefully to hear the features that support life in each clip.
