Crocodiles , Alligators  ...  Crocodilian !

Crocodiles , Alligators ... Crocodilian !

Crocodiles and Alligators are intriguing subject matter! This product contains a lesson plan, 2 Powerpoints, a two-page worksheet, and a graphic organizer. Also included is an activity for students to draw what Crocs might look like in 200 million years. Students will discuss: What do Crocodiles eat? What characteristics have helped them survive while other species have become extinct? What would you name a crocodile? (although this is more of a creative "brain break," I've included names of crocs at our Texas zoo- in 2014.)How can a crocodile breathe and look around while submerged? How many species are there? and much more. Many crocodile body parts are discussed (teeth, eyes, tail, etc) as well as habits (inability to sweat, sounds, buoyancy, etc.)This 2 day lesson gives the option of allowing to use the graphic organizer to further research certain species and note findings. Teachers in grades 4-7 may choose to delete some of the more academic slides and keep the presentation simple. The PowerPoints are editable for that reason. (Originally, this lesson was created for an 8th grade class.)Thanks!!
