This project helps students research the reasons behind an animal being placed on the endangered or threatened list as well as what is being done to help the animal. The student can then infer how this animal's extinction would affect its ecosystem.
This packet includes:
Nonfiction articles about endangered and threatened species, the job of a conservation biologist, and a conservation success story about the bald eagle.
An easy-to-use research packet for students, including an online source where they can find animals that fit into the different threatened categories
A fun booklet to explain their findings. In this booklet, they will explain what they've learned about their threatened animal. Then they will create a photo album of the animal in the wild as well as a map of a sanctuary that would help this animal live a healthy and happy life.
