I added a list of included habitats to section 2 of my research. I also added a discussion question regarding differences between the habitats presented in this lesson.

I really like this lesson plan, it is well thought out and provides great materials to help teach this standard.

Something I like about this resource is that not only does this lesson plan look at the students being able to define what a habitat is, but also makes sure they can say the word, with all the sounds, read the word, and write it. It is a great way of incorporating and generalizing reading skills.
An opportunity for improvement of this resource is listing the different habitats that are looked at in this lesson plan, perhaps in the overview section.
Something I wonder about this resource is how will I know my students can distinguish between the different habitats presented.
One new idea to consider in the design of this resource is maybe a discussion on how the habitats differ based on the students understanding of weather.
