The word habitat refers to the place where animals and plants live. Without a good habitat that has the things an animal needs, the animal's survival will be in serious danger. In fact, habitat loss is the number one reason that species become endangered and extinct in the wild! Create a habitat in a paper bag that will meet all of your favorite wild animal's needs.

A birdfeeder, if it is put in a good spot, will attract all different kinds of feathered friends throughout the year. Plus, this type of birdfeeder is a great way to recycle a used plastic milk jug!
