3 Projects to Integrate Tech into an Animals Unit–Part I

Somewhere between third and fourth grade, students cover how animals adapt to their environments and what special characteristics they develop to enhance their survival. This is a wonderful time to use the internet to explore the amazing creatures that inhabit our world in all of their unique glory.

I put together a series of explorations for my lower school:

    I have taught the students how to use a table when I taught the periodic table unit. They placed various characteristics about a choosen element onto a chart in word and many of the kids were happy to learn the skill.
