Student-compiled information on endangered species of SE United States
#etlobest #endangeredspecies I found this to be an amazing article about the possible extinction of bees. I would like to introduce this article to students prior their research on their endangered species research project and discuss what could potentially occur if bees are not protected from extinction. I think that students will be able to relate to this topic because it is something that they see or have seen at some point in their lives.
#etlobest #endangeredspecies This is another great website that I can introduce via Smart board. Students can use this website as a resource for their endangered species research project. It has a lot of great information about the different species and it is easy to use. There are even featured videos to watch. I am going to show the students the profile page on the gray wolf because it is an endangered species within the United States.
#etlobest #endangeredspecies This website offers everything about types of endangered species, where they are located, how to help save the species, and even has sections for landowners, grants, and a great kids section. The particular section that I am going to show students is about the featured species called the West Indian Manatee. I would like to introduce this to my class via the smart board and help them learn to navigate around this resource.

#etlobest, #EndangeredSpeciesList This is a great source that I like to refer students to when they begin searching for endangered species. It offers a ton of information on each species and so many to choose from. I like how it offers photos, videos, and other information on each species. It is also very kid friendly.
