- Lesson Duration:
- 60 Minutes
- State Standards:

How do different seasons impact Everglades aquatic life?
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
Incorporate the Everglades into your lesson planning. In partnership with teachers, we are proud to offer multidisciplinary, curriculum-based activities that bring relevant lessons from the field into the classroom. These materials can be used as pre-site lessons for any in-park field trip. Please click here to view a list of Everglades Curriculum Materials.
