Presentation on theme: "Georgia Habitats: Swamp/Marsh"— Presentation transcript:
1 Georgia Habitats: Swamp/Marsh 3rd Grade Life ScienceStandard: S3L1a
2 StandardsLife Science S3L1. Students will investigate the habitats of different organisms and the dependence of organisms on their habitat.Differentiate between habitats of Georgia (mountains, marsh/swamp, coast, Piedmont, Atlantic Ocean) and the organisms that live there.Identify features of green plants that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia.Identify features of animals that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia.Explain what will happen to an organism if the habitat is changed.
12 Plants in region: Includes, but not limited to: cypress trees Spanish mossCattailswater liliespitcher plants (can only be found in swamps)bladderworts
13 Plant features that allow them to live and thrive: Plants that thrive in wet conditions.Flexible stems with floating leaves (lilies) that can withstand water movement.Grow roots above water for additional support (cypress trees).Deep roots and roots that can grow underwater to anchor plants.Plants endure extreme variations in temperature above and below water.Plants in poor soil get nutrients from other sources, including animals (pitcher plants).
