Great Smoky Mountains National Park, first grade, animals
The fundamental significance of Great Smoky Mountains National Park is that it is a sanctuary for a remarkably diverse array of native plants and animals, providing a place that students can learn about the different animal groups.
This unit is broken into three parts. The overall unit involves a trip to the park and is accompanied by three preparation activities and three wrap-up activities. This is part 2 of the wrap-up activities of the unit.
1) Students will increase their understanding and appreciation of spiders adaptations and role in the food web.
Teachers coming on the accompanying field trip should download our complete field trip packet that includes all of the lessons: Have to Have a Habitat pre-site lessons, information and directions about the field trip and Have to Have a Habitat Wrap-up lessons.
