Summer SAVY 2017, Session 2/Day 4- Survive and Thrive (Rising 1st)
Happy Fourth Day!
Today the students organized animals according to where they live, body coverings, and how they move from place to place. Their understanding of the characteristics of plants and animals was tested when they had to think of the similarities of all animals, including people. They even recognized when their answers needed more research; truly amazing!
As always, they were excited about observing their mealworms and watering their habitats. They wrote short blogs and stories about their mealworms to be shared with you tomorrow. Also, they will be able to take their mealworms, lab journals and coats (t-shirts), and folders home tomorrow; therefore, we will review proper care of the mealworms.
Finish the following sentence with one word that involves all animals, including people.
- All animals are ________________ (the word “alive” may not be used).
Respond to the following question:
- What are appendages and how do they help animals survive?
