ABSTRACT

This chapter presents the lesson plans for the Habitats Local and Far Away STEM Road Map module. The chapter provides a series of four lesson plans – Earth’s Amazing Endangered Species, Our Local Endangered Species, Endangered Species Throughout the World, and the Save the Species Challenge. Moving through the lessons, students explore habitats and make connections between habitats and endangered species. Students will investigate features of habitats and how these features meet the basic needs of living things, and will explore animals’ physical adaptations to their habitats. Students’ work culminates in the Save the Species Challenge where they create an action plan for how people can ensure an endangered species’ survival.
