Look no further! I have written 19 lessons that you can use to teach Georgia Habitats! These lesson plans cover the Georgia 3rd grade standard:
-S3L1. Students will investigate the habitats of different organisms and the dependence of organisms on their habitat.
-S3L2. Students will recognize the effects of pollution and humans on the environment.
*These lesson plans go with my Habitat Booklet that is also available for purchase at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
You can simply copy and paste these plans into your own lesson plan template! The lesson plans cover 4 weeks of teaching. In the first two weeks, the lessons are geared for the students to research the 5 GA Habitats in cooperative groups using the Internet, encyclopedias, etc. Students will be filling in the booklet that is also sold at my TPT store. By the end of the 2nd week, students are working towards creating a project to display their knowledge.
Week 3 lesson plans are about learning the animal and plant adaptations and how they thrive in their environments. These plans also go along with my Habitat booklet sold at my TPT store and the Georgia CRCT Coach Science book.
Week 4 lesson plans are about learning the changes that can happen in habitats as well as pollution and conservation. These plans also go along with my Habitat booklet sold at my TPT store and the Georgia CRCT Coach Science book and two great PPTs I found online that give valuable information for FREE!
The plans contain great website links that can be used for research and learning.
*Please remember that these lesson plans were written for me to read. They are easy to follow if you use the Habitat Booklet also sold at my store. However, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me! I'm always available to help and make it the BEST Habitat Unit for you and your students!
