- Which animals are endangered?
- Why are they endangered?
- What can we do to help endangered animals?
Discovering Endangered Animals encourages students to explore these questions through investigation, activities and discussion.
Beginning with a unit on why species have become endangered, each chapter covers a group of creatures (mammals, primates, birds, reptiles, sea creatures and insects) and contains a wealth of background information, interspersed with hands-on tasks. Fully reproducible worksheets include models to construct and activities for inside and outside the classroom. A unit on saving animals and habitats, plus games, solutions, contacts, a glossary and references round out this packed resource for the middle years classroom.
Discovering Endangered Animals caters to a wide range of learning styles and preferences. The content provides for higher levels of thinking, open-endedness and 'discovery'.
