There are many different habitatson the Earth. Humans are able to adaptand change their behaviorin order to better live in the different habitats.
Think about what you wear when you are really cold. You might wear a jacket and long pants to stay warm. If you are warm, you might wear shorts and a short sleeve shirt. Examples: Cold region Warm Region
Some people live in really cold areas and live in homes that are comfortable for that climate. Others live in really warm climates and their homes are designed to be cool.
Humans plant trees and shrubsto help prevent erosion. The roots of the plants help protect the soil by anchoring it into place.
In the cities, there a lot of covered surfaces so that rain cannot easily be absorbed into the ground. Floodingcan occur if the water is not allowed to soak in. Example: Flood
To help prevent flooding, humans have made rain gardens which allow the water to soak into the soil. Video: Rain Garden
In some habitats, water is scarce. Human conservewater in order to have it through the dry times. To conservewater, they may not wash their cars or water their yards. Water conservation games
Land can also be scarce. One way to save land is to recycleas much trash as we can. Recycling keeps it from going to the trash dump. It also helps save materials that can be used for other things. Example: Recycle Game

Assessment Directions: Answer these questions on your paper to turn into your teacher. • You see a video of a grass hut. It has a fire built in a pit outside its open entry way(no door). What do you think the climate is like? How do you think the people will dress on a normal day? Why? • In another video, you see a well constructed house with a fireplace(smoke is coming out of the chimney). It has a pool in the backyard with a cover over it.
