Color Overheads Included!! The information and activities in this resource book enhance children's knowledge and awareness about the components of a grassland environment, including physical and biological characteristics. Students will discover where grasslands are located on our planet. They will find out what features grasslands have in common, what types of organisms live there, and how they are adapted to survive. As they explore grassland organism adaptations, students will discover similarities and differences between living things in grasslands and those in other ecosystems. Activities that emphasize the ecology of plants and animals, food chains and food webs, and survival will enable students to relate the structure of living things to their roles in the ecosystem. Students will also begin to understand how they themselves are dependent on grains-the seeds of grasses. The material follows a learning cycle that includes: a) free exploration by the children; b) expanding the exploration through activities that allow children to test, integrate, and sort out their discoveries; and c) application of concepts through individual and group projects. Emphasis is placed on the curricular areas of science, math, art, social studies, reading, writing, drama, and movement. Activities involve skills in observing, classifying, measuring, recording, predicting, listening, writing, brainstorming, constructing, explaining, describing, comparing, contrasting, organizing, sharing, inventing, and designing.
