This project encourages students to ask questions and do research related to different habitats around the world (i.e. desert, ocean, forest etc.). They are asked to identify a problem (caused by either natural or human means) and then to take action by informing others about the issues they research using an informational poster.
This project meets curriculum expectations from the Ontario Grade 4 Science curriculum (Habitats and Communities) as well as the Ontario Grade 4 Language (Media Literacy) curriculum. It is meant as a culminating activity; therefore it makes the assumption that students have a basic knowledge of the Grade 4 science curriculum related to Habitats and Communities. It includes a rubric for evaluation (based on the Ontario achievement chart) as well.
