This wetlands, deserts, and forests animals and plants picture sort was specifically designed for the Utah 4th Grade Standard 5 Science Core along with the ecosystem wheel, booklet, and sketch. There are 24 wetlands pictures, 32 mountain/ forest pictures, and 24 desert pictures. Labeled pictures should be cut out and sorted into pockets, envelopes, or used on the provided sorting mat. Pictures are colored AND black and white and perfect for second-language students. Some animals fit into multiple categories. I love using this in science centers or for cooperative learning. To differentiate this, you can print out and cut out the animal and plant cards. Then, mark on the back a D for desert, F for forest, or W for wetland. Students can self-check the answers.
Also included is a 7 page interactive UTAH ecosystem booklet where students 1) define the surface terrain of forests, wetlands, and deserts 2) plants found in forests, wetlands, deserts 3) animals found in forests, wetlands, and deserts. This is great for homework or cooperative learning where students can research online the information. Also included is an ecosystem foldable note and ecosystem wheel that you copy onto cardstock and join the second paper with a paper fastener. Students write the plants and animals onto the second page. Also included is a sketch of the details and facts of each ecosystem as well. This is a PERFECT MATCH to my Utah Ecosystems Review Assessment
and Adaptations Foldable Note!
