Oh no! The animals have escaped! Students start this lesson on animal habitats with a game, where the 'Zookeeper' gives clues to find the missing animals. When the fun is over students use a graphic organizer to sort animals into their proper habitats. The lesson would be appropriate for ELD or ESL students focused on describing and classification. Overall this lesson is ok, but seems lacking in content.
First graders define a habitat. They describe and illustrate the different types of habitats and the organisms found in the various habitats. They classify animal pictures into the correct habitats. They complete a summary activity of animals found in each habitat.
Groups of pupils circulate through five animal habitat stations and add information to the circle map located in each station. Then, they are shown the form of a lantern poem, and go to the computer lab in order to construct an original poem in the lantern form. They view a variety of animals in their habitats and create a poem about the animal of their choice. Both the poem and the picture are printed, and a bulletin board is created in class. Very nice!
Students choose from the following list a method of presentation: writing piece, poster, diorama, song/rap, skit, PowerPoint presentation, or web page of a representation of a habitat, adaptation, an example of how we destroy/promote animal survival.
