A compilation of clips of animals from different habitats. The compilation focuses on the eyes of each animal to emphasise how they see the world in different ways and the characteristics they need to survive in their habitat. Note: there is no narration in this clip.

Ask the children to watch the clip and see how many of the different animals featured they can identify. Ask them what part of each animal was shown. Introduce the children to an imaginary creature you have invented who does not like the heat or light of the midday sun. Ask the children to create its den and consider the best place to put it and the direction the entrance should face.
