Overview

The students will be able to: a) compare and
contrast differences between animals and themselves, b) define
the concepts of variation and biological diversity, and c) develop
a classification system to group the animals in this activity; i.e.
runners, swimmers, fliers, two-legged or four-legged.


Background

Our "Wildlife" unit is broken into 16 lesson plans, each taking from 20 minutes to several class periods to complete, and targeted mainly at 4th-6th grade students. A class needn't complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another and are better done in sequence. However, each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources.
