Inspiring Ecology - Living Things Past and Present

Inspiring Ecology - Living Things Past and Present

Developed by Dr Martin Hughes Lesson Name: Living Things Past & Present Level: Primary - Second Level – P6/7 Unit: Planet Earth – Biodiversity and Interdependence Learning Intention: I can identify and classify examples of living things, past and present, to help me appreciate their diversity. I can relate physical and behavioural characteristics to their survival or extinction. SCN 2-01a. Lesson Outline Living things on Earth have evolved over time to produce an amazing array of diverse species. Although lots of species exist today, the majority of living things on planet Earth have become extinct. It is therefore imperative to understand a number of factors that can lead to the survival or extinction of a species. Before we do this however, it is important to recognise how we classify animals into different groups based on similar characteristics. We can classify most living things into seven major groups - mammals, reptiles, birds, insects, fish, amphibians and plants. Once this has been established we can begin to examine the physical characteristics (fur type, fur colours, endotherm or ectotherm etc) and behavioural characteristics (diurnal, nocturnal, burrowers, pack or lone hunters etc) that contribute to an animal’s survival or may lead to an animal’s extinction. This complete lesson package includes a Teacher’s Guide; PowerPoint presentation; Student Handouts, Glossary of Terms and additional sources of information which may be useful to enhance your lesson.
