Description

Your students will love making a model of a newly discovered animal with this STEM Challenge! Students will read a card telling them what habitat they are in and what they need to "observe." Then they will take "field notes." Included are teacher tips and suggestions, task cards, directions for the challenge, and a sheet for students to take notes on, and a rubric so students can self-evaluate their work.

*This activity is included in our fourth grade life science unit.

Examples of structures could include thorns, stems, roots, colored petals, heart, stomach, lung, brain, and skin. Assessment is limited to macroscopic structures within plant and animal systems.
NGSS4-LS1-2
Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways. Emphasis is on systems of information transfer. Assessment does not include the mechanisms by which the brain stores and recalls information or the mechanisms of how sensory receptors function.
