Learners read a passage (included) about America, its land, and seas. Students think about the meanings of the words contrasts, vast, grasslands, fertile, bayous, glaciers, tundra, and plateaus. They label illustrations with the correct vocabulary words and complete several other activities. They finish by writing the vocabulary word on the line next to its meaning.
Fourth graders investigate the characteristics of plants and animals in the grasslands. In this wildlife lesson, 4th graders are given reference materials about grasslands and gather information on the wildlife. Students write down questions and answers based upon the grasslands and play a game of "Twenty-One." The game reinforces facts about the grassland wildlife.
Students explore the grasslands. In this grasslands instructional activity, students examine paintings and discuss the different types of animals that live in the grasslands. Students examine the grassy areas around them and compare them to the paintings of the grasslands they see.
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.
From the depths of the oceans to the peaks of the mountains, your class will see the world with new eyes after this lesson. In a discussion about different ecosystems such as the jungle, the tundra, and the grasslands, they will describe which plants and animals might exist in those regions. After the discussion, have them draw a picture of the area in which they were born. If you don't like the scripted format, you could easily take the ideas to craft your own lesson.
