In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
Place the natural items you have gathered on a cloth on the floor or a low table. Say in these words or your own:
Here are some things that are found in a habitat. A habitat is the place where animals or plants are normally found.
As you hold the items up, ask questions such as these:
If you have galls to show, explain that they are a very tiny habitat, or micro-habitat. Galls are parts of a plant—usually a stem or leaf—where a wasp, fly, or other insects lays its eggs. The bulge in the plant part is from swelling after the wasp slits the stem or leaf and inserts its eggs. The gall is a little nest for the eggs and has all the food, shelter, water and space that the hatchling insects or larvae need for the first stage of their lives.
