Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge You Can Make a Difference In the Life of An Endangered Elephant - Section 5: Class Discussion/Wrap Up


This lesson helped my students connect what they knew to be true based on evidence, in reference to  the adaptations elephants have made both structurally and behaviorally, and then relate it to the impact humans are having on the elephant population. This cause and effect relationship helped propel them to the bigger social issue of conservation. This lesson helped me connect both academic areas in a way that left this lasting impression on my students, one person, can make a difference.
