CRC for Technology Education Title III Technology Literacy Challenge Grant Project Information Page Mammals Project Page This project was developed as part of the Title III Technology Literacy Challenge Grant’s Capital Region Collaboration for Technology Education. 2001-2002 By Sandy Hladik Sharon Johnson Grade 2 Mohonasen Central School District / H.L. Bradt Introduction The purpose of this web-activity is to introduce students to the animal group mammals. Students will be able to use this activity and the Internet to identify mammal characteristics and identify an animal as belonging to the mammal group. Learners This will be used in a 2nd grade classroom. However, the written material is suitable for learners functioning at the 1st grade level. Resources Teachers will need to have access to a printer to print out the Treasure Hunt question worksheet and the animal chart worksheet, which is found on the web-activity. Students will need to have access to a computer, an Internet connection and a writing utensil. Standards Standard 1: Language for Information and Understanding Students will listen, speak, read, and write for information and understanding. As listeners and readers, students will collect data, facts, and ideas; discover relationships, concepts, and generalizations; and use knowledge generated from oral, written, and electronically produced texts. As speakers and writers, they will use oral and written 2001-2002 CRC for Technology Education Title III Technology Literacy Challenge Grant language that follows the accepted conventions of the English language to acquire, interpret, apply, and transmit information. Standard 4: Science Students will understand and apply scientific concepts, principles, and theories pertaining to the physical setting and living environment and recognize the historical development of ideas in science. Standard 5: Technology Students will apply technological knowledge and skills to design, construct, use and evaluate products and systems to satisfy human and environmental needs. Process Teachers would do an introductory lesson to introduce the animal groups. This web-activity would work best in a computer lab with the teacher acting as a facilitator. Students would log on and complete the treasure hunt. Students may need to be paired with a partner or complete as a whole group in order to answer the questions on the treasure hunt; this depends on the ability of your students. Once students have completed the questions, they will go back to the home page and click on the words Is it a mammal? Students will use the knowledge they gained from the treasure hunt and animal chart to decide if the animal they see is a mammal. If they click the wrong answer it will indicate why it is incorrect.
