Second graders examine the characteristics of animals who live in a pond environment. In groups, they describe the various stages in the life of a frog and identify the characteristics of other pond animals. Using this information, they create a PowerPoint presentation to share their information with the class.
Second graders work in pairs to create a slide presentation about pond animals. in this pond animals lesson plan, 2nd graders learn about the pond environment, the habitat of animals that live in a pond, their life cycles, and characteristics.
Second graders construct a pond habitat in the classroom using a small swimming pool partially filled with water, real cattails, a tree log adjoining, and plastic animal life appropriate to a pond setting. They examine the frog in detail and discussed lifecycle and characteristics along with identifying common frogs and toad of Illinois and the vocal sounds they produce.
Students define what a pond habitat is and explain what animals live in this habitat. They discuss what can harm or destroy a pond habitat. They create a poster of what could harm a pond habitat including illustrations and sentences. They share their posters with the class.
A vertebrate is an animal that has a backbone. Youngsters learn about vertebrates such as birds, mammals, fish, amphibians, and reptiles that live in or near pond habitats. The class is divided into vertebrate groups as they play a matching game that helps them learn to identify defining characteristics of each animal group. The lesson concludes with a re-reading of the story, Maple Pond, which they will use as they complete a related worksheet.
Young scholars compare bottled water qualities to water found naturally in a pond habitat. They research their state's laws/regulations in regard to bottled water and study the advertising, cost, and quality of brands of bottled water. They test their water and create a Powerpoint presentation with their findings.
What kinds of animals live in or near ponds? The lesson begins as you read the story Butternut Hollow Pond by Brian J. Hein. As you read, the class discusses how a pond can provide all the things some animals need to survive. When the story ends, each child will write a narrative with illustrations that describe what life is like for the common pond animal they have chosen.
Students research pond animals. In this science lesson, students research pond animals using Hotlinks. Students write a riddle about their pond animals.
Young scholars write a riddle about a pond animal. In this pond animal lesson plan, students write the riddle by researching the animal on a Hotlink Page, and make a class book of their riddles.
In this science worksheet, students read 16 species names of pond animals and locate them in a word search puzzle. There are no graphics on this puzzle which has a word bank.
Learners research pond animals. In this science lesson, students view a PowerPoint and video about pond animals to learn about pond animals.
Second graders research pond animals. In this pond animals instructional activity, 2nd graders examine characteristics of various pond animals and contribute to an animal riddle. Each student riddle will be added to a class book.
In this pond theme instructional activity students research facts on pond life. Kids complete comprehension questions, crosswords, word search, and math puzzles. Students write a short report.
What a terrific way to explore the pond habitat! Learners discuss the animal and plant life found in the Long Island area. They also discuss vocabulary terms, identify pollution concerns, and resource conservation.
In this Venn Diagram learning exercise, students compare the pond habitat with another habitat of their choice. Students compare and contrast two habitats.
Students interact with a CD Rom to examine pond life. In this pond life lesson, students access a CD Rom entitled "Sammy's Science House CD Rom" in order to see pond life during the different season of the year. They study the associated vocabulary.
Young scholars explore the evolution from a pond habitat to a meadow. In this habitat lesson plan, students become familiar with a beaver meadow habitat. Young scholars are aasigned an animal to research and find why the animal best survives in that habitat. Students understand succession and explain how the transformation took place.
Students familiarize themselves with the common organisms that live in a pond and discover their importance in a balanced aquatic habitat as they create food webs. They also investigate how an environmental change affects the habitat as a whole.
Students identify the different organisms in the food web. In this biology lesson, students create food chains using the information on cards. They explain what happens if an organism is removed or added in the web.
Learners explore animal habitats in this collaborative instructional activity. 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.
