Using their own observations, students will determine what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive. They will collect data on Chihuahuan Desert plants and animals, both from models and in animal habitats. As a class, they will use data from their observations to find patterns in plant and animal survival needs. Finally, the class will play a “survival game” using their new knowledge and showing evidence of their learning.
