Objective(s)

This coloring puzzle will help students learn about the ecology of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.

Background

Before providing this worksheet to your students, go over the concepts of habitats and community types. They will need to know about some of the different community types found at Great Sand Dunes and a few of the species that might live there. Consider printing out a copy of Habistack for use as flash cards. Make sure the students understand the difference between "the sand dunes" which refers to the pile of sand itself and "Great Sand Dunes" which refers to the entire park and preserve and includes all varieties of habitat.
