Reflection: Student Feedback Why Habitats Change? - Section 2: Engage


The students understood most of the vocabulary terms, but they had a difficult time with 'endangered.'  One student thought that the word 'endangered' meant that an animals was hurt. I asked another student and they responded in a similar manner. I believe that the students did not fully understand the term because the word 'danger' was in the word.  I had to reteach the term by having the students say the definition and I showed them body language for each term. Then, I informed the students that 'endangered' means when there are only a few of its kind left. For instance, tigers are 'endangered' because people want their fur and cut down the animals' homes.  When animals become 'endangered'  they can become extinct if we do not protect them or their home. This example helped my students make a connection.
