Hi, my name is Tashi

And together we are explorers.

Rigzen, what are we going to do today?

I don't think so.

Oh wow! I never noticed this. We have such wonderful animals around us of which we know very little.

Will you join us in this exploration?

I am Rigzen

We go to new places and see new things.

I am glad you asked. Tell me if you have seen a house of a sparrow?

Did you know that our house is also the house of a sparrow? Sparrows build their nests in between the gaps of our roof and walls.


Then lets go and find out more about the homes of animals that live around us.

Let us begin by reading about the homes of different animals.

We Love Our Home


Wow! Animals are just like us. They too love their homes.

That sounds like fun. You all should also come with us. It will be quite an adventure. But we must remain close to our home and stay safe.

You are right Tashi. I think animals are like us but yet different. I think we should explore the homes of some of the animals and birds that live around our village.



  • Observe houses of at least 5 animals, birds or insects found around your house.

  • Think about how these houses keep them safe and what material is used to build those houses and why?

  • Write a short story about newly discovered animals, birds, and insects and their home. Get creative!
