Did you know that 99% of the species that have ever inhabited our planet are extinct? This loss of species is primarily due to changes on Earth. As our planet changed, species had to change with it. Those organisms that could not adapt to those changes became extinct.
Presently, there are many animal species on their way to extinction due to natural events or human actions. These species are endangered or at risk for extinction. For this assessment, you will pick one endangered species from each class of animal vertebrates and research its physical characteristics, behaviors, reproduction, common ecosystems, and reason for endangerment. You will place this research into the chart provided, along with a picture of each of your organisms.
Please review the student example and rubric for this diagram before continuing to the endangered species chart.
Make sure you include the following in your chart:
Now it is time to complete the assessment for this lesson.
