This was a collaborative effort between Melanie George and Connie Roan. Students will work in collaborative groups and investigate animal characteristics, their habitats and basic needs using the Internet and library. They will then make a power point presentation of their animals to educate the rest of the class.

Science, Social Studies
In this lesson, from Science NetLinks, students participate in classroom discussions about animals. They also visit a Web site to learn more about animals and how well (or poorly) they've adapted to satisfying their needs in their natural habitats. These activities will help move them toward the goal, in later grades, of understanding ecosystems.
Classification 2: A Touch of Class
This Science NetLinks lesson, the second of a two-part series on classification, extends the investigation of living organisms carried out in the first lesson by exposing students to the idea that a variety of plants and animals can be classified into one or more groups based on the various characteristics of a specific group. This lesson gives students the opportunity to look at and discuss different classification schemes.
In this Science NetLinks lesson, students explore the relationship between a bird's beak and its ability to find food and survive in a given environment. Students learn about bird beaks through observation, both virtual and of local birds, and through a variety of games and activities.
