This is a plan for an animal habitat activity. Just copy and give to your students, and they will know what is expected of them.
Required elements:Research paper- at least one page, 3-D model, labeled illustration of the habitat within the ecosystem, illustration of a food chain that includes chosen animal, graph comparing the # of animals living in chosen ecosystem.
I have also included a rubric for easy grading purposes. The students enjoyed this very much, and made connections with science and math. You may alter this activity to suit the needs of your classroom.
