Project Description:

Each student will create a diorama (a portable museum-exhibit style project) representing the habitat that they chose out of 5 options:

  • Rainforest
  • Ocean
  • Desert
  • Forest
  • Polar

To create the diorama project, a shoe box or other small box may be used as the space for the diorama (The box should not be bigger than an adult sized shoebox). Students may use plastic figures or mold items from clay to represent animals, plants, and other objects for their projects. Materials such as magazine photos, silk or plastic plants, popsicle sticks, toothpicks, glue, construction paper, and other craft items may be used. Creativity is strongly encouraged!

Project Instructions:

The diorama should include all of the following:

1. Colors reflecting the habitat that was chosen (Ex: An ocean habitat would have a blue background to represent water)

2. Name and the habitat chosen labelled on the back corner of the box

3. At least two animals that live in this habitat

4. At least two plants that live in this habitat

5. Label for all items in the habitat

6. An index card taped to the back of the shoebox, describing the habitat by answering the following questions:

a. – Why was this habitat chosen?
b. – What types of plants and animals live in this habitat?
c. – What is the environment of this habitat like?
