For this lesson, we are going to study Endangered Species just in time for Earth Day. In our summer camp, we're working on the topic of REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE, so we've collected a ton of plastic bottles, toilet paper rolls, milk cartons, egg cartons, and bottle caps.
We are going to ultimately ask the students choose an endangered animal and create one using the given objects. (you can give the students any material you want, and see what their minds create).
If you have a whiteboard with a projector, show the following exercise on the whiteboard, and ask students to write their answers in the spaces.
With a partner, discuss the following questions and write your answers. You can research the answers for questions 1 and 2 if you need to and write the answers IN YOUR OWN WORDS.
1. What makes a species endangered?
2. How many endangered animals can you list?
3. What are some reasons animals have gone extinct?
4. Is it our responsibility to responsibility to save endangered animals? Why?
