Learning the Causes of Extinction

Students are introduced to the five major reasons for extinction. In groups, they read scenarios and divide them into different categories. Using the internet, they identify which reason a certain animal became extinct. To end the lesson, they use the acronym HIPPO to remember the reasons for extinction.
