The 5 E's
1. Have you ever seen a creature that looks like this? (Holds up a picture of a lizard)

2. Once they have looked in books and video's they will fill in the "L" column.
3. Students will be looking for any type of information about the reptiles.
The students will write a story about a reptile using all the information they have listed on the chart. They need to use as much detail as possible that they learned about reptiles. This will show what they have learned in a creative way.
The students will demonstrate their new understanding and skills by using their knowledge to create a story and act it out with the puppets. This information about reptiles will be found in books. This will show that they understood what they read about. The students will write atleast five sentences about reptiles.

(B) Compare and give examples of the ways living organisms depend on each other and on their environments. Activity 1
The students will be in groups of four. On each table there will be a bag of tools they will use to represent a reptile. The tools are tongs, staple remover, clothes-pin, and long piece of tape. The students will use these tools to grab different types of food. More detail in lesson. Activity 2
The students will use the knowledge that they gained in activity 1 to research a reptile that they were assigned to.
