Product Description
Upper Elementary students learn about the structures animals have to help them with nutrition, self-defense, reproduction, and communication. Inquiry activities include:

Activity 1: My Beak is Better Than Yours: Students focus on the beak structure of birds and how this specific structure helps them get food.
Activity 2: Salmon Swim Home: This engaging activity gives students the opportunity to become salmon and use their sense of smell to navigate home.
Activity 3: Poster Reports: These reports focus on structures of animals and how they help with nutrition, self-defense, reproduction, and communication.
A Grading Rubric is included for the poster report.

This unit was designed specifically to address NGSS 4-LS1-1: Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support, survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction. This unit is appropriate for grades 3-5.

This unit is also available in a bundle with Plant Structures. Buy the bundle and save 25%.
