Our Learning Goals:

1. Observe and describe how all living and nonliving things affect the life of a particular animal including:
• Other animals.
• Plants.
• Weather.
• Climate.

2. Observe and record how animals of the same kind differ in some of their characteristics and discuss possible advantages and disadvantages of this variation.

3. Observe and discuss how behaviors and body structures help animals survive in a particular habitat.

4. Explain and discuss how humans and other animals can adapt their behavior to live in changing habitats.

5.
Recognize that humans can understand themselves better by learning about other animals.
