Grade 1: How Do Feet Help Animals Move and Survive? (1-LS1-1)


This unit focuses on animal characteristics that allow them to move and survive. Students are asked to explore varying animal feet and how they move. Lessons explore and investigate how feet vary and fulfill a function for an animal’s survival. Students are asked to conduct an experiment, research for deeper understanding, graph data and create and test a model. The final goal is for students to make connections and comparisons between animal feet structures and their function and how that information can help to solve a human problem.
