Meet Animals of the Ocean

Meet Animals of the Ocean

In this lesson, students role-play animals of the ocean and are asked to think about how these creatures interact with each other, and how these interactions are important to the life and health of the ocean. Students will understand that living things live in different places where their needs are met and will use a range of methods to sort information, including drawings and tables. Students will be able to name animals that live in the ocean and their behaviours and represent the behaviours of ocean animals through movement.

Learning About Living Things: Frog in a Pond Game

Learning About Living Things: Frog in a Pond Game

This lesson is based on the game 'Red Light, Green Light’, with a twist. The player nominated as ‘it’ is a frog and the rest of the class are insects, trying to cross the pond without being eaten. Students will understand that living things live in different places where their needs are met, will be able to articulate how the game illustrates the relationship between a frog and insects and learn to follow the rules of a simple game.
