I Like to Move It

This I Like to Move It lesson plan also includes:

What do lemurs do best? They move! Lemurs like to jump, run, hop, and climb and it's your class's job to document seven fun lemur behaviors. The class starts by discussing why lemurs are considered primates, and then they isolate seven trackable lemur behaviors. They watch videos and use the included data tracking sheet to document how many times lemurs rest, nose greet, clump, jump, groom, sun themselves, and eat.

Pros
  • The lesson fosters hypothesis development, observation skills, data collection, data analysis, and scientific reasoning skills
Cons
  • A video is required, but not included in the lesson plan. However, any video depicting lemurs in action will provide the data children need to prove their hypothesis.
