Learn about the structure and function of living organisms by drawing an imaginary animal in the Take the Stage game show, ANIMAL SURVIVAL! Viewers become contestants on a game show and are challenged to draw an imaginary animal that could live and survive in either the desert, ocean, or the arctic tundra. When drawing the imaginary animal, the contestants write out two distinct structures and a function for each of the structures that help it survive. Learning Objective: Compare the structures and functions of different species that help them live and survive in a specific environment.

In small groups, students experiment and observe the similarities and differences between human-made objects and objects from nature. They compare the function and structure of hollow bones with drinking straws, bird beaks, tool pliers, bat wings and airplane wings. Observations are recorded in a compare & contrast chart, and then shared in a classroom discussion, along with follow up assessment activities such as journal writing and Venn diagrams.

The Lost in the Amazon curricular unit is a series of minds-on and hands-on engineering activities based on an adventure scenario set in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. Students imagine themselves to be a team of EnviroTech engineers returning to the U.S. from a conference in Brasilia, Brazil. When their plane crashes deep in the Amazon forest, they work in groups to overcome various obstacles in their quest to survive and reach the nearest city as quickly and safely as possible. Motivated by this adventurous theme, students discover, learn and apply the following: 1) classification of plants and insects; 2) general categorizing skills; 3) process skills: problem solving and critical thinking; 4) scientific testing and experimentation; 5) materials properties.

The Needs of Living Things
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Students watch video clips of animals and plants in their natural environments to determine what living things need to survive. They will then complete an illustration of their own real or imagined plant or animal fulfilling one or more of their needs for survival, within their natural environment. While this lesson does a good job explaining how animals meet their needs through their environments, additional lessons and experiences with plants would need to be provided in order to meet the full standard.

Groups of students will use random dice rolls to create a new species of animals with random traits and behaviors. They may end up with a blind, mouse size, ambush hunter that stalks the fruit that it eats. Another group may get an elephant size, amor plated, carnivore with active camouflage! Will it survive??? That is up to the students to decide...

In this one-hour program, Jean-Michel Cousteau travels with his team to the Arctic and sub-Arctic to discover why some beluga groups are thriving and others are disappearing. The relationship between people and belugas is ancient. For more than 4,000 years, hunters of the north have depended on these whales for their own survival in a land with little to offer. These traditional cultures have now partnered with scientists and modern technology to protect the beluga, which, in turn, ensures their own future. Yet these efforts are only a small part of the story as new discoveries have raised troubling questions about the health of belugas and their long-term survival.

What is your one final driving question?    What do plants, animals, and people need to stay alive?Background information of this driving question:    What grade are you working?    I am working with kindergarten but this could also be used in a first grade class to teach them about needs and wants. Which standard are you targeting?    I am targeting a kindergarten life science standard.K.LS.3    Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.My grabber is a video from Peep and the Big Wide World. The name of the episode is “Peep Plants a Seed.” The video is about 8 minutes long. After they watch the video we will plant a bean seed.  Introductory Grabber:The teacher will start out by introducing the idea of things that are needed to survive for people and then showing the Peep video. The video is just about Peep learning how to plant a seed and take care of it. After the video the the teacher will ask about the video, and then introduce the plan of planting a bean seed. This is an effective way to to introduce the topic because they will already have an idea of how to take care of a plant and they will want to be able to experience the same as Peep.Link to the video and bean plant instructionshttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Yxs7P7LWzDghttp://www.greatgrubclub.com/grow-a-bean-plant#.WMlOuZH3ahA
