Animal Habitat Diorama

 

            For your City Wildlife book report you are to choose a factual book or article about your animal that you researched for your animal report.  After reading your book you are to make a creative diorama about your animal’s habitat.  Be sure to follow the directions below very carefully. 

 

Your diorama will be due Thursday, February 15th.

 

CREATE A DIORAMA

 

A diorama is an empty shoebox decorated to display your animal’s habitat.

 

You will need a shoe box, a 3”x5” index card, construction paper, markers, and various other items that can be used in your project.

 

1.  Cover the shoe box with construction paper, wrapping paper, or paint.  The inside                     of box will be a model of the animal’s habitat.

 

2.  Use the descriptions from the book or article to imagine what the animal’s habitat

looks like.  Gather all the items you will need to recreate the habitat inside the shoe box. 

 

3.  Some items you may wish to use are: clay, small toys, spools, yarn, leaves,

     sand, aluminum foil (for lake, ponds, etc.), buttons, popsicle sticks, twigs,    

     grasses, or anything else you can think of.  BE CREATIVE!

 

4.  Be sure to anchor (glue, tie, staple, etc.) everything down, so when your                   

     completed diorama is moved, it will not be ruined. 

 

5.  On a 3”x5” index card, write your name and your animal’s name.
