Hosted by DiscoverySchool.coms Lesson Plans Library, this Animal Instincts lesson plan was created for fifth and sixth graders by Virginia elementary school teacher Jessie Kraft. The lesson teaches students about differences between instincts and learned behavior, the role instincts play in survival, and the relationship between environment and behavior. The site contains sections on Objectives, Materials, Discussion Questions, Evaluation, and more. Additionally, the site includes academic standards and benchmarks, links to other related sites, and a neat vocabulary list that links to audio clips pronouncing each word and using it in a sentence. This Animal Instincts lesson requires two class periods and is available in a Rich Text Format printable version.
