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, we offer free environmental education lesson plans to K-5 teachers. 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. Don’t have the Ako books yet? Please contact us for a free set of six books to use in your classroom.

Only found on the island of Madagascar, there are more than 100 different kinds of lemur. They are the most endangered group of mammals with many very near extinction. Through these books and curriculum, we aim to spread awareness of not only lemurs and their importance, but also connect children to nature through activities that highlight the relationship between people and our environment.

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