The study was designed as a case study, a qualitative perspective and conducted with 64 students from a private school during the 2017-2018 academic year. Three open-ended questions were posed in semi-structured interviews and the students' responses were analyzed using the content analysis technique. The results revealed that the students developed an awareness of natural habitats and the interaction among living things.
