Word of the Day is designed to help children learn how to use a dictionary, whilst simultaneously expanding their vocabulary. Today’s Word of the Day begins with the letter ‘H’. The word is: habitat.

habitat n. Natural home of plant or animal; habitation. [L, = ‘(it) inhabits’]

Why not discuss with you class the local habitats? You could combine it with learning about animals, migration and hibernation.
