What's in a Name?

This What's in a Name? lesson plan also includes:

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.
