Lesson Plan

"Fish Relay"                            Wildlife: 4-6th Grade           

Woodstork and Vulture


The students will be able to: a) describe the wet/dry seasons of the Everglades/South Florida, b) describe what happens to aquatic life as the waters in the Everglades dry down, c) explain why wading birds nest during the dry season, d) describe how the Everglades’ wildlife is adapted to the wet/dry season.


Our "Wildlife" unit is broken into 15 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
