Session plan for interest level: 1, 2, 3


In this book, readers will discover the plants and animals that make up the rich, interconnected ecosystem of a mountain pond.


Over the pond, the water is a mirror, reflecting the sky. But under the pond is a hidden world of minnows darting, beavers diving, tadpoles growing. These and many other secrets are waiting to be discovered…over and under the pond. Students will learn about pond habitats and have the opportunity to read more about an animal he/she is interested in. Students will cut/paste animals that live in a pond.
