Learning About Endangered Species
There Is Still Time
Science The National Wildlife has an excellent site for students that explains that "endangered" means there is still time to save species in peril. The site www.fws.gov includes slide shows of various fish and animals in the United States. It also includes specifics about how kids can help these animals. Assign teams to a particular animal or species. Use this site for research and then do group reports that focus on using the time that is left.
