9th November, 2010 - Posted by Sammie Gann - No Comments

Thanks to Guilford County Schools for sharing their science students in action! In lesson 8 of the STC™ Organisms Unit, students are introduced to a second freshwater animal, the guppy.  Students observe their plants and animals coexisting in the same environment.

* Students observe, draw, and describe a male and female guppy.

* Students share their observations and discuss similarities and differences among organisms.

* Students use a Venn Diagram to discuss similarities and differences of snails and guppies.

* Students discuss what guppies need to live.
