Science KS1 / KS2: Identifying the natural habitats of animals

Science monkey superhero Dr Brain and a team of young scientists identify some of the natural habitats of different animals.

There are several different habitats all over the world which provide the basic needs for different types of animal.

Animals are suited to their own habitat, and can find food and shelter there when needed.

The Mad Lab team must correctly send all the animals in the lab back to their own habitat - can they do it?

This short film is from the BBC series, Ultimate Brain: Mad Lab.
