There’s No Place Like Home: Survival in different habitats

7th June, 2011 - Posted by Sammie Gann - 59 Comments

In the STC™ Animal Studies unit, Lesson 15 is titled There’s No Place Like Home. In this lesson, fourth grade students discover why most animals would not survive well in any habitat other than their own. They see that humans are different than the fiddler crabs, millipedes, and dwarf african frogs that they have studied because humans can change their behaviors to adjust to a variety of environmental conditions.

i like when the student was talking about the belly because that show’s deatails.and the stomach was pail an the part. when they were talking about the eyes lids they probaly don’t have eye lid’s because they are under water. and the milipedes are slow when the student was talking about the speed milipede’s don’t have speed the are slow like turtle’s and they have 101 or more legs.and the crab’s they sre like fast slow i think so

Cool video!Had very many details!I liked the part when they were talking and the teacher was asking if we could live in the millipede habitat.If i could share my answer it would be no because we need shelter and food we can not eat the same things as millipedes can. We can eat lettuce and apples and carrots but they might can eat bugs.We can eat some bugs but not a big variety like they might be able to.I also liked how they were sharing their answers!It was a cool video.

This unit was fun! We got to feed the animals and touch the millipedes. We even got to read a story! When we touched the millipedes, we had to wear gloves. They tickled my hand! The best part was when we used the magnifying glass to observe more closely.
