E. T. A LOCAL WAY OF Learning


Title: GUESS WHO

Author: Eulalie R. Rivera Elementary School Environmental
Education Team

Grade Level: 1-2

Concepts: Disciplines:
2. Ecosystem 1. Science
2.Social Studies
3. Art

Objectives:

The students will explore and find various animal homes and record their findings by drawing pictures of the
home and of the animal who lives there.

Rationale:

Every living thing needs a place to live whether it be a man, a bird or a mouse. By looking for animal homes
and talking about the needs of those animals the students will acquire a deeper appreciation of human needs
as well as an understanding of the complexity and diversity within the animal kingdom.

Materials Needed:

Each child should have a worksheet and a piece of cardboard or clipboard to write on.

Directions:

At school, prior to the field trip talk about homes of animals and people. Have students cut out pictures of
such homes and make a collage. Examples of pictures could be water-fish, small holes-worms, nest-bird,
trees-termites, cracks small bugs. Talk about animals such as mice, iguana, and deer which they probably
'won't see.

Divide the class into small groups of about five or six. Instruct the children to look carefully for animal
homes. When they find one they like they should stop and carefully draw it and in the square next to the
home they should draw the owner of the house. At the end of the activity ask the following questions:

1.Why do animals or people need homes?


2.How can you figure out which animals live in which homes?
