Research and write about animal habitats or historical settings after listening to the book Tulip Sees America by Cynthia Rylant. The whole group locates and discusses vivid word choices that describe the main character's journey across the United States. Individuals select a research topic, complete a graphic organizer based on this research, and write a paragraph including interesting descriptive details.
Students explore the animal habitats at the zoo. In this animal science lesson, students read about animal habitats from a textbook and construct a list of animals that live in specific habitats. Additionally, students take a field trip to the zoo and record the types of habitats they see.
Second graders write and illustrate a story. In this habitats lesson plan, 2nd graders learn about different types of plant and animal habitats. Students view video segments about habitats, answer comprehension questions, complete a crossword puzzle, read stories about different animal habitats and use the information learned to write and illustrate a story about habitats.
Learners investigate animal habitats in zoos. In this animal habitat lesson, students fill in a KWLH chart about zoos before looking at pictures of African animals in zoo habitats. They discuss what they see and take a field trip to the zoo where they take digital pictures of animals in their habitats. They complete an art project of a chosen habitat.
Learners explore animal habitats in this collaborative lesson. First, they read Who Lives Here? by Dot and Sy Barlowe. Next, they get into groups to do research on one of three habitats, ponds, grasslands, or deserts. Finally, they create a visual presentation of what they learned, and share it with the class.
Students explore animal characteristics by creating a poster presentation in class. For this animal habitat lesson, students visit the local zoo and identify which habitats certain animals are most comfortable in. Students answer study questions about animal habitats and create a poster presentation based on a single habitat.
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. They then provide a bibliography of resources cited.
Research animals and develop a non-fiction presentation. Students will complete research on a particular animal and determine the animal's characteristics as well as habitat before choosing a differentiated project to present using the information. Lots of choices are given in a menu format that include: book covers, placemats, game cars, theatrical response, etc...
The perfect activity to follow a class field trip to the zoo! Young scientists use photos of different animals to observe their characteristics and sort them into appropriate categories. Learners can come up with all kinds of categories as long as they justify their thinking. informational texts can act as good supplemental materials for this exercise as well as good texts to share with older reading buddies. Finally, learners will create animal classification collages!
