This is a closed school activity. To learn how your school can get involved please call the Cooperative Extension.

The 4th Grade at Murphy Elementary will be studying what makes a habitat. Through a Project Wild activity the students will take the habitat into the world and create a colorful picture of the biome assigned to their group. The youth must include all the things that make their assigned biome unique. The youth will then present to their class their picture and why they put the different plants and animals in their biome. All groups will have their pictures displayed at the school. This is a great project for youth to learn about different environments and the plants and animals that make those environments unique.
