They also learn about the effects that changing conditions can have on this unique environment and its inhabitants. Students develop their literacy skills through a science focus on how physical conditions, living things, and habitats are connected. During this process, they read informational text, learn and practice vocabulary words, and explore content through a video and interactive activities.
