Grade 2

Why Do Animals Move to New Homes?

Historians make connections. In this lesson, students will be introduced to migration vocabulary as they learn about the migration patterns of animals they are familiar with and a few that may be new. Students connect these animals to the push and pull factors that cause them to migrate as they answer the mystery question: "Why do animals move to new homes?" Have students complete this lesson before moving into more inquiry in Lesson 2.
