Combine art and word analysis in a lesson about genus and species. Elementary children sleuth out the meaning of scientific names for a number of shark species using a prefix and suffix definition chart. They then draw an image of the shark based upon their "translation." Afterward, they compare their drawings with the included images. Handouts, answer keys, and extension suggestions will make the lesson go swimmingly.
Students are introduced to the classification system of animals. In groups, they set up an aquarium in which they must maintain throughout the year. They also observe earthworms and how they react to various stimuli and research the characteristics of arthropods. To end the lesson, they focus on one phylum of animals and present their information to the class.
