Student Reflection.

This lesson went very well, I was happy with the use of the interactive board and how I
transitioned from that to working with students on the floor to determine where to group
animals in their habitat. Other options would have been to group the students into habitats
and have them produce anchor charts describing the habitat and listing animals that may
live in their habitat.
The students had a good understanding that habitat is important for an animals survival, we
discussed food, adaptation for survival.
The next step is to get them to write about a habitat and an animal that lives there.
