*This unit was created with the Alberta Program of Studies in mind, but is compatible with Common Core and Curricula throughout Canada.
- Classify a variety of animals, based on observable characteristics; e.g., limbs, teeth, body covering, overall shape, backbone.
- Observe and describe the growth and development of at least one living animal, as the animal develops from early to more advanced stages.
- Predict the next stages in the growth and development of at least one animal from each of the following groups: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects; and - - identify similarities and differences in their developmental sequences.
- Identify the food needs of at least one animal from each of the following groups: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects; and describe changes in how each animal obtains food through different stages of its life.
- Demonstrate awareness that parental care is characteristic of some animals and not of others, and identify examples of different forms of parental care.
- Demonstrate awareness that animals require different habitats in order to meet their basic needs of food, water, shelter and space.
- Recognize adaptations of a young animal to its environment, and identify changes in its relationship to its environment as it goes through life; e.g., tadpoles are adapted for life in an aquatic environment; adult frogs show adaptations to both terrestrial and aquatic environments.
- Identify examples of environmental conditions that may threaten animal survival, and identify examples of extinct animals.
- Recognize that habitat preservation can help maintain animal populations, and identify ways that student actions can assist habitat preservation.
- Demonstrate knowledge of the needs of animals studied,
and demonstrate skills for their care.
