Endangered animals and conservation issues

Endangered animals and conservation issues

I have bundled together ten resources which focus on endangered animals and conservation issues . Polar bears, sea turtles and albatrosses all face particular problems in our seas and oceans. These resources take a look at these creatures and how they are adapted to their natural environment and what steps we must take in order for them to survive in greater numbers. The problem of plastic waste is a recurring theme in several of these resources. This bundle includes quizzes, comprehensions , poetry and puzzles which will engage pupils and inspire them to do their own independent research. Suitable for ages 7 and upwards.

Skeletal System Project

Skeletal System Project

This fun and engaging project, clearly lays out the expectations for a simple interactive creation project in which students make a model of the basic human skeleton. Students are expected to include the major seven bones that outline our bodies, as well as include clear labels and answer a few simple questions. There is a rubric at the bottom, with pre-made scoring outlines to simplify assigning a fair and appropriate grade. The students will have a blast with this project, and they will deepen their understandings of the human skeleton!
