Enduring Understanding: There are many different kinds of animals and plants and they may have different habitats.
Essential Question: How do various habitats differ?
The student will be able to identify and match eight different items found along a trail or in the out-of-doors with pictures on their Bingo board.
1.) Bingo Board
2.) Crayon, tape, and a piece of yarn long enough to attach the crayon to the board
Student Task: Each student will receive a BINGO board from the teacher. The students will carry the boards. While on the trail, when the students see an animal, plant, etc. that is on their BINGO board, they are to draw an X over that picture. All of the boards are the same, but the students may or may not see all of the items pictured.
1.) The students will walk down a trail and look for the real version of the picture on their boards.
2.) When they match the real with the picture, they will put an X over the pictures on their BINGO boards.
3.) The students can only mark over each picture once.
4.) After Closure, at the end of the trail, the students will give the boards back to the teacher.
Teacher Closure: Review the boards as the trail is completed. Point out actual examples of each picture. Explain to the students how important it is that we protect our natural environment and respect the animals that live in it. Tell the students to look in their backyard at home for some of the same animals or plants they saw on the trail.
