Explain what it means for an animal to be endangered then explain what it means for animals to be extinct. Provide some examples of extinct animals like the dodo bird and the wooly mammoth. What other animals do they know have become extinct? After this, explain what might cause an animal to become endangered like the destruction of habitat and hunting. Next, students will complete the endangered animals word search. Describe some endangered animals in-depth like the rhinoceros, giant panda, and the green sea turtle. Students will then drag a heart to the endangered animals pictured and a star to the animals that are not endangered.
