3. Endangered Earth (cc)

03. Endangered Earth (cc)

The Earth is home to a multitude of plants and animals. Man is the biggest threat to the existence of these species. Changes in the environment of these plants and animals often cause their numbers to dwindle and they become endangered. If conservation methods are not used, these species can become extinct. Projects include: Elephant Family - Both the African and Asian elephant are on the endangered animal list. This pompom and chenille elephant is of the Asian family characterized by smaller ears, a hump-shaped back, and very short tusks. Endangered Animal Banner - Here we create a felt banner to remind all to help fight to save "Our Animal Friends." Whooping Crane - This bird is perhaps the best-known endangered species in North America (and also the tallest at about 5 ft.). Here we make a wacky version of this beautiful bird with Styrofoam. Pull Toy - A fun way to show some endangered animals' characteristics - die cut paper is an easy and inexpensive base to our project. Endangered Animal Flip Book - Create a paper book of different endangered animals, including the whale, tortoise, sea otter, black rhino and walrus. Hands-On Project 403 - Kids helping other kids through their crafts. 04/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
