Students will read Stinky Cecil in Terrarium Terror and cite text evidence of the structural adaptations of the character Nesbit the chameleon. Students will then use this evidence to make predictions about the chameleon’s natural environment. Finally, each student will research the structural adaptations of an animal of his or her choosing and create a visual product (advertisement, infographic, comic, video, etc.) based on his or her research.
Students will read Stinky Cecil in Operation Pond Rescue and discuss the food web and habitat of Cecil’s pond. Then, they will do research on the pond’s inhabitants and create posters to show what they have learned about the ecosystem.
