  • New York State 5th Grade Science Standard:

  • 5.2a Plants respond to changes in their environment. For example, the leaves of some green plants change position as the direction of light changes; the parts of some plants

  • Undergo seasonal changes that enable the plant to grow; seeds germinate, and leaves form and grow.

  • 5.2b Animals respond to change in their environment, (e.g., perspiration, heart rate, breathing rate, eye blinking, shivering, and salivating).

  • 5.2c Senses can provide essential information (regarding danger, food, mates, etc.) to animals about their environment.

  • 5.2e Particular animal characteristics are influenced by changing environmental conditions including: fat storage in winter, coat thickness in winter, camouflage, shedding of fur.

  • 5.2f some animal behaviors are influenced by environmental conditions. These behaviors may include: nest building, hibernating, and hunting, migrating, and communicating.

Reflection

  • We did the lesson twice because the first time we had too much information to process. Although we had access to three computers it was not enough for the class. I download the information for the students. Student were able to draw and write about their animal and plant they observe and research in class. I would prefer to use the computer room. My focus was to help student explore how to use the internet as a research tool with the internet. I would also use a simple website that was more age appropriated. It was easier to down load the info. ,
