Grades 3-5. By caring for and observing 3 unique animals during the Animal Studies unit-the dwarf African frog, the fiddler crab, and the millipede-students are able to focus on animal behavior, comparing and contrasting the needs, behaviors, and anatomical structures of each organism. Each student creates and maintains a personal observation log in which he or she records notes about each animal throughout the unit. Students apply what they learn about body structure, habitat, survival needs, and behavior to a fourth animal-the human-identifying ways that humans are similar to and different from other animals. Students practice observing and recording data in their logs as well as in Venn diagrams, class webs, tables, and drawings. Students conduct a research-based inquiry that moves students away from general observations and asks them to apply their scientific process skills as they gather and synthesize information about their animals’ behavior.
