What is a habitat and what components are important for lemurs? When the habitat changes how are lemur populations affected? Can you graph the change in lemur populations?

In this 1 hour long activity provided by the Lemur Conservation Foundation for 2-3rd graders, we play a game that illustrates the habitat needs of wildlife and how changes to an animal’s habitat affect its population. We discuss the key components of a habitat and at the end of the activity we practice making a graph.

Developed to accompany the Ako children’s book series, each of the six Ako books feature a different type of lemur, from Bitika the baby mouse lemur to No-Song the Indri to Bounce the White Sifaka.

Use the Teacher’s Resource Guide to learn more about lemurs and gain background information before carrying-out the lesson.
