This is a 5 lesson unit plan, with a mini-project (rubric included) and final test included for Grade 4 Understanding Life Systems: Habitats and Communities. (En français)
The unit focuses on the impacts of urban sprawl on the environment in terms of deforestation and endangered species. Activity pages are included for each lesson for students to reflect on these issues. Students will also explore the how to classify organisms by: herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, decomposers, producers, and consumers.
The mini-project asks students to pick an endangered species and do a mini-research assignment on their choice.
