Elementary School, Mammalian Biology Lesson Plans (1 result)
Do you love furry animals — studying them or even playing with them? Maybe you wonder why your pet loves that certain ball, or shakes hands with one paw more than the other. Or maybe you are curious about how bats navigate through the dark. Then you're sure to enjoy learning about mammalian biology with your pet or other friendly animals you know!
Get creative with your students in this hands-on lesson plan! Students will use mostly natural materials to build a shoebox habitat that mimics a real-life habitat for an animal of their choice. As they present their miniature habitats to each other, students realize that not all habitats are suitable for all animals. Each animal species needs the resources of a specific habitat to survive.
NGSS Performance Expectations:
- K-ESS-3-1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants and animals (including humans) and the places they live.
Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.>/li>
