Animal Wonders - Sea Mammals Lab
Patricia Valdez Certified Teacher
We will learn the wonders of the life and habitats of the sea lion, whales, otters, walruses, and dolphins.
US Grade 2 - 4
Classes begin with a short lecture, a 3-5 minute video (usually paused where vocabulary is written and explained). Then we move on to a lab and end with a review for that day's lesson. *Please note that I prefer students to have their videos on during classtime and keep chatroom conversation to a minimum. Day 1 What is a mammal? Characteristics of sea otters. Reading worksheets or Compare and contrast animals using Venn diagrams. Lab Create a Sea Mammal mobile: scissors, glue stick, colors,...
Students will learn the parts of several sea mammals and their habitats.
Having been a Biology teacher for thirty-five years has allowed me to teach students about all kinds of animals and their habitats. Every summer, I offer various animal summer camps for kids. I now want to offer this same experience on Outschool for children around the world.
Homework OfferedEvery week the students will be assigned a handout. It may be the parts of the animal or a lab worksheet.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedOral review and assessments will be how I will evaluate the students.
