is a 2nd grade project for kids filled with activities that lead learners on a project-based research adventure
through various habitats. Students will work cooperatively
to investigate habitats. This unit was also developed to allow for students to take a more active role in their own learning. Most of the exploration and observations will take place by the students.
The teacher will act as a guide and step in when needed, but most of the work will be done by the students.
This unit was created for the busy teacher who has a great deal of science to cover and not a lot of time. Students are exposed to cooperative learning and technology. Habitats can be taught in about a week and kids finish this fascinating study having learned all they need to know about Habitats while incorporating ELA standards into the content area. (If you have a class that has difficulty with collaborative learning or project-based research you may need to do a more shared experience with more guidance from the teacher.)
Some pages are the same with different habitat pictures to represent the habitat. This was done on purpose to provide consistent expectations for each team.
