After logging into your CLI Engage account, launch the activity by clicking the button. Type the child’s first name and last initial to begin!
At the end of the activity, the child will be asked to draw a picture of the habitat they’d most like to visit.
Have the child show you the picture they drew. Ask them to describe the habitat to you and what they could do there.
- After each child’s attempt, print or save their results. This must be done before you exit to avoid loss of results.
