Animal Habitats Worksheet (Beginner ESL/EFL)

Worksheet for Teaching Animal Habitats to Beginner ESL/EFL Students

Level: Beginner to Lower-Intermediate
Download: animal-habitats-worksheet.doc
Target Language: "Bears live in the forest."

This is an animal habitats worksheet I created for the grade 3 & 4 students at the Japanese school I teach at. I use it as part of the unit I teach on animals. After teaching animal names and habitats using flash cards, I use this worksheet to give them some writing practice and to reinforce the target language "(animal) live in the (habitat)".

As a note, if you are teaching animals, you could also use this worksheet for teaching simple adjectives to describe animals.

Key language:

Animals: monkeys, zebras, foxes, sharks, snakes, goats

Habitats: the desert, the forest, the mountains, the sea, the jungle, the plains

Enjoy the worksheet.

    In my elementary school class, the students and I reached agreement that zebras live in the plains. This may not be true in all cases, as you argue. The worksheet is a .doc, so feel free to open and edit it to your liking.
