Aquarium Habitats

Fourth graders investigate real world habitats of marine animals and compare those with man-made habitats (aquariums). Using a T-chart, 4th graders compare and contrast the features of each. Students visit online aquariums and determine the positive and negative characteristics that may create problems for the marine life.Based upon their research, students write an essay to explain what an aquarium should contain.

After 28 years of teaching English, I signed up to teach grade nine art. My school only has 15 teachers and the students were losing out on opportunities to explore their creativity. Having access to the lessons on Lesson Planet has helped me to cover the curriculum while having fun with all the different ways of teaching the subject. To say this site is a blessing is an understatement!
