The New York Times Daily Lesson Plan website regularly features lesson plans for grades for six through twelve on a variety of topics. In this lesson plan, entitled "No Place Like Home: Arguing for the Protection of Endangered Species," students research and present analysis on the impact of the physical environment on an endangered species. Based on their investigations, they also create "a plan for the ideal care of the species" and develop an advertisement that is intended to promote awareness about species protection. The authors list the materials needed, describe the activity and identify the science standards for grades six through eight and grades nine through twelve met by this lesson. Interdisciplinary connections and related resources available online are also presented.
