"Go Back Home" Don't Let It Loose : 5-8th Grade
OverviewThe natural food chain within a habitat is finely tuned. For any species to survive within a habitat four components are needed: food, water, shelter, and space. Exotic species can take these components away from native species.
Our "Don't let it Loose" unit is broken into seven lesson plans, each taking 45 minutes to 4 classroom periods to complete, and targeted primarily at middle school students. A class needn't complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another. However, each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources.
