Prestwick Profile Community Vol. 35
Spotlight on Learning
In 3rd grade, learners are focusing on a Science PBL (project based learning) covering learning about Adaptation and Traits while reviewing Ecosystems and Ecology.
Students are assigned a specific biome (ecosystem) and they are to work in small groups to locate one endangered species within their assigned ecosystem. They are going to research why their animal is on the endangered species list (environmental, man, climate changes).
The students will develop and publish a PSA (Public Service Announcement) advocating for the protection of their species. Over the course of the project students will attend workshops to help understand adaptations of different animals. This will allow students to better comprehend how they live, eat and survive in their environment.
This will be an informative, engaging and fun PBL!
