Lesson Plan 3

 (Extension)

 

"EXTINCTION IS FOREVER"

Beyond:

  • How would the world be different if your favorite animal was no longer around (was extinct) or your favorite kind of tree , bird, etc.
  • Could an oil spill cause a local extinction? (Possibly if an animal was only located in that area such as a rare "endemic" {native} species that does not occur anywhere else).


Extensions:

  • Students can draw a picture of their animal.
  • Students can do a small research project on a particular endangered or extinct species.
  • Or create an informative poster about their animal.
