3.1.3.A2- Describe the basic needs of living thing and


their dependence on light, food, air, water, and shelter.
3.1.3.A1- Describe characteristics of living things that
help to identify and classify them
3.1.4.A5- Describe common functions living things
share to help them function in a specific environment.
In groups (C) all 3rd grade students (A) will research and
present (B) a assigned habitat to teach the class to the
class through putting a creative presentation with 90%
accuracy (D).

At the end of the 1st class an exit slip will be taken to


make sure that the groups are on the right track with
their research information.
At the end the students will be graded on the
information in their presentation
Empowered Learner-Students leverage technology to
take an active role in choosing, achieving and
demonstrating competency in their learning goals,
informed by the learning sciences.
Student can have group help him when doing any of
the craft part if the group decides to do a poster or
anything else craft like
Another student can help take notes
Two of them can work together to do the research on
one laptop
Student can use voice command to search the web on

What plants/trees would be found here?
What is the weather typically like here?
What other nonliving objects may be found here?
What are some common animal characteristics? Why
may this be?
Objective Statement
In groups students will work in small groups to research
a habitat and present it to the class.

been assigned.
Key Vocabulary
Habitat
Climate
Living vs. nonliving
Characteristics
PreAssessment of Students
Asking what they think are in habitats

Guiding the Practice
A sheet will be provided to guide the students through
their research asking what animals, plants, and other
nonliving objects are found here.
Providing the Independent Practice
Students will work in their groups to do the research and
creat a presentation.

Transition
Groups will get up and move into the groups that have
been assigned and student can sit where they want in
the classroom to work on this.
