Objective: Students will demonstrate their understanding of how different environments support different varieties of organisms by taking pictures of a microhabitat in the schoolyard. Directions: 1) Click in the activity tab and post an illustration taken of a microhabitat in the schoolyard, using the camera, or upload file options. 2) Use the icon to add labels that identify objects in your microhabitat image. 3) Use the icon to describe the climate, vegetation, location, and water in your microhabitat on slide 2. 3) You may use the icon to record a vocal explanations to any slide (in addition to the typed description) if you'd like. 4) Answer the questions on slide 3. Be sure to complete all slides, prior to submitting to your teacher. 5) Click to submit your work to the teacher. You can click on "view instructions" to access notes on biomes, if needed.
Teacher will take the class outside around the schoolyard to take pictures needed for the activity. If wi-fi is spotty, students can use their phones to take pictures then once back inside the classroom, continue the activity. If a student is absent they may use images taken from outside their home.
