4th Grade Endangered Animals

Open a Google Doc or Slide. Entitle the Google Doc/Slide with your last name and your animal.

Example: Vicari-Hippopotamus

Share the Google Doc/Slide with me (bvicari@spboe.org).

Find the answers to each question. If you make a Google Slide, there should be at least 5 slides.

  1. Describe your animal. Is it a fish, a mammal, a bird, or a reptile? What kind of habitat does it live in? What does it eat?  Write this information in note form! (bullet points, no complete sentences) Example:

      • Lives in rivers, lakes, and mangrove swamps, but can’t swim well, though
      • Lives in sub-Saharan Africa
      • Herbivore: eats grass
