This PBS-Nature Online website presents a well-organized lesson plan about the Characteristic of Snakes and Turtles for grade levels 1-4. Recognizing the wide range of developmental stages between grades 1-4, the site notes that various parts of the lesson are more appropriate for certain ages and should be adapted based on the grade level and abilities of your students. The site contains an overview of the lesson including Learning Objectives as well as Standards and Benchmarks for the subject areas of Life Sciences, and Technology. The website provides a Procedures For Teachers section which details lesson activities spanning multiple class periods. This section also contains a list of supplementary sites for the lesson, materials needed such as computer resources, and extension activities. For students, the site provides three printable sheets for the lesson including a Reptile Information Sheet and a Reptile Word Search.
