OVERVIEW:

This FutureFit lesson is designed to supplement a standard 12-15 unit lesson for 1st or 2nd-grade Earth Science by offering a unique project that ties together the core academic concepts with a set of FutureFit social-emotional and character education skills.

STUDENT/GROUP OUTPUT:

In groups, students will produce a "sales pitch" designed to attract animals to a specific habitat. They will develop visual aids (posters, flyers, etc.) designed to market their chosen habitat to the "target audience," and present the sales pitch to the class. Classmates watching the presentations will record their reactions and decide whether or not an animal should move into the advertised habitat.

  • The different types of biomes in which animals make their habitats
  • Characteristics of animal habitats within certain biomes
  • TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES (suggested):

  • Internet access

STANDARDS ALIGNMENT

These activities support the following NGSS earth science curriculum standards:
