Are you teaching habitats
Collecting resources to meet NGSS 2-LS4-1• and 3-LS4-3º?
This product is a great collection of resources and activities for a garden habitat.
♦ Read a short background and then check out a web site with more information and activities!
♦ Use easy-to-follow directions and make a wall display or a student pop up display of a garden habitat for a cricket and a ladybug. Do you have time? Make both!
♦ Watch a video showing a student creating a pop up display.
♦ Show a PowerPoint™ presentation* to introduce garden habitats - the images are copyright free so use them any way that works for you and the text has been translated into Spanish.
♦ Show a PowerPoint™ presentation to introduce the different kinds of plants in a garden. It's been translated into Spanish, too!
♦ Read a student text about plants in a garden and a text about what a garden provides for an aphid. Each text is saved with three reading levels in English and two in Spanish, blackline or color images. Students who benefit from hearing the information can listen to recordings.
♦ Choose from 4 kinds of assessments: quick, pencil-and-paper, for the struggling student, and for the capable student. Assessment worksheets have been included as Word™ documents so you can modify them for your students.
It's hard to estimate the time needed to create displays, read about habitats, and assess student learning - it's up to you! The activities could be completed in a few days or a few weeks of science classes.
