FIFTH GRADE                

   WILDLIFE IN TROUBLE 

An introduction of exotic and invasive species in the Everglades and the effects of habitat loss.

Students will examine the effects of exotic and invasive species in an ecosystem using riddles and research. Students will be able to explain how exotic and invasive species can harm native species or habitats in the Everglades.

Students will examine the effect of exotic species on an ecosystem by role-playing both a healthy food chain, and a food chain that has been impacted by Mayan cichlids. In the process of role-playing, students will compare and contrast the adaptations of a native species and an exotic species.
