This webquest is built for a 2nd grade classroom that is beginning to learn about animals and their habitats.
The webquest is an introduction of some of the animals that can be found in their different habitats. It is built that the students can learn from it, but can continue to learn more in depth knowledge afterwards. The information the students are given in this webquest can be built on throughout the unit.
The Performance Expectation for standard 2-LS4-1 that is used for this wezbquest is make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats. With the help of the video and the game in this webquest the students are able to observe many different animals, and then compare them using the venn diagram.
The disciplinary core idea is there are many kinds of living things in any area, and they exist in different places on land, in water, and in air. (LE.LS4D.a) The video and the game discuss animals in different habitats. Some of the animals are in the water, some are on land, and some are in the air. By the end of this webquest quest students will be able to list a few animals that fall under each habitat.
