This product is a short/ simple quiz for students to use at the end of the Small Crawling and Flying Animals Unit. There is also an adapted version for students who may need a shorter version of the quiz with less writing.
The following curriculum outcomes are addressed:
1. Recognize that there are many different kinds of small crawling and flying animals, and identify a range of examples that are found locally.
2. Compare and contrast small animals that are found in the local environment. These animals should include at least three invertebrates-that is, animals such as insects, spiders, centipedes, slugs, worms.
3. Recognize that small animals, like humans, have homes where they meet their basic needs of air, food, water, shelter and space; and describe any special characteristics that help the animal survive in its home.
4. Identify each animal's role within the food chain. To meet this expectation, students should be able to identify the animals as plant eaters, animal eaters or decomposers and identify other animals that may use them as a food source.
5. Identify and give examples of ways that small animals avoid predators, including camouflage, taking cover in burrows, use of keen senses and flight.
6. Identify ways in which animals are considered helpful or harmful to humans and to the environment.
