An IB PYP Science Inquiry Into Animal Adaptations
This complete, interactive and hands on science unit is designed with 5th grade science standards and the IB PYP. The experiments stations are a whole lot of hands on fun and the interactive notebook keeps the kids engaged as the learn to independently research and inquire. If you can get your hands on owl pellets you'll be the best teacher ever!
50 pages of inter-disciplinary printables
suggestions for over 12 lessons and activities ( 3-4 weeks)
task cards for 3 collaborative group work inquiries
6 experiment stations with notebooks
research based lesoon plans and more
The lessons took me about 4 weeks and culminated in a summative group assessment where the children had to become adaptions experts and together, create and design a mystery animal based upon the animal's environment and behaviours.
I have included links to a few websites that are also fun and interactive.
