Presentation 

Students watch this video about mammals

 

The diversity of mammals is amazing.Theycan be as huge as these whales,or as tiny as this cute little balancing mouse.They can be noisy like this howler monkey, or quiet like this hedgehog with its sharp, pointy spines. Even though they’re amazingly diverse, all mammals have a number of common characteristics you should know about, so you can recognize and differentiate them.

 

All mammals are viviparous, they are born from their mothers’ womb. In their early stages of life, they feed on milk, which they get from their mothers' breasts where the mammary glands are. And that’s why they’re called mammals. And when they’re little, they’re so cute, aren’t they? Mammals reproduce by internal fertilization when a sperm cell and an egg join inside the female.

 

As you can see, they have teeth inside their mouths, and lips around them so they can eat and suck milk. Most mammals’ bodies are covered with hair, and all mammals breathe with their lungs, even if they live in the sea.Look at these dolphins coming to the surface for air.

 

The body temperature of mammals doesn’t depend on whether it’s cold or hot outside, because they can maintain their own internal temperature.

 

Almost all mammals are terrestrial, like camels, and jaguars. Some live in the sea and are called Marine mammals,like these dolphins,and these seals. There's even a flying mammal, bats are the only mammal that flies. There's even a flying mammal, bats are the only mammal that flies.

 

Mammals have four limbs, which vary depending on where they live. Land mammals have legs,so they can walk,and run when they need to,and Jump.,and sometimes even climb. Marine mammals have fins so they can swim very fast... And flying mammals have wings so they can fly through the sky...

 

Do you know which is the most wonderful mammal that lives on Earth? Human beings! People are mammals too...

 

How mammals feed Depending on what they eat, mammals can be classified into different groups.

So, let's remember …

Now you have to design a mind map including the following information about kangaroos: country of origin, feeding, breathing and reproduction
 

 

0:00
own right as we're seeing here
0:03
is armed went to plan on and tool
0:06
that text to mind map an into online graphic organizer
0:11
creator and it's free with no membership required size suggests that
0:15
you take advantage of it and the key to text to my math innes
0:19
simplicity its lead to higher still
0:22
is very simple and for somebody who's
0:26
not very good with technology
0:30
I am you can definitely work year-round this because I can
0:33
I'm a lot of people easy to make my maps
0:37
additive bulleted lists as you can see here on the left
0:40
is the bulleted list arm
0:43
listing the months of the year I'm how I can edit it is I can go ahead and delete
0:48
this
0:49
and put mine on and it will show up like this
0:54
on and what you can do means good options
0:58
and we can go ahead and call these outsell
1:03
i doing my header hello and goodbye in different languages
1:08
and I game spanish-english and Chinese
1:12
you can move it around to Jesse anyway
1:15
you are running funky year more importer
1:18
I'm I can I like this look to any
1:22
cell when I can't hear is Lochbaum
1:25
long they can still be moved around right now
1:29
but they don't shake home I can going
1:33
and if the fun cell planned you this one
1:36
in NC I'm sometimes it spreads you can just go ahead
1:40
what's more I can change a science
1:45
oMG I hadn't
1:49
123 so
1:52
them real I can change color
1:55
you can go ahead
2:00
sneak in any color you want hammer other hand for
2:04
and you can change the branches that
2:07
as well now
2:11
I can also change the line color and likened to look a little more distinct
2:16
I'll go ahead and make him
2:18
Jack Black can also change the world I'll go ahead
2:24
with me im and
2:28
that is really all you need to do you know in
2:32
mine text to my nap and down here
2:36
you can fill me in and by saving on
2:39
you can change in style to your map and you can also put in your email in case
2:44
you lose the map
2:45
home and so I just cleaned
2:52
Nargis
2:55
and think the mindmap are
3:01
grateful that is not working but what will happen is if you just give an email
3:05
address
3:06
you know give you an URL that you can see even come back to the email
3:10
addresses just sell
3:11
if you lose that URL they can help you
3:14
find it by sending you an email for it you can also see a man I forgot to show
3:18
you that
3:19
you now on
3:24
and then you can also download it you can just amor image for gallant PDF
3:29
this makes it really nice for printing and
3:33
so yeah time I would say
3:37
overall on educators can really benefit from
3:41
using this program and it's a great program to use like with a smart
3:46
birdbrain you have the entire class
3:48
and you're trying to brainstorm a topic early concept
3:51
it can see a lot of time because you can go ahead and copy in peace now trying to
3:55
text while
3:56
from a text file into the empty column on the left right here
4:00
like I didn't I'm
4:03
and it's nice that you can save it as a PDF file
4:08
I'm students can just you know refer back to it
4:12
on whenever they need to and I also think it's great for working in small
4:16
groups
4:17
mom interest in if students are working together on a project
4:20
they can organize and manage it by making a text to mind map it's also
4:26
great for as a guide for writing I'm when students are
4:30
mapping out the ideas and topics they wanna read about
4:34
on and this is also a risk taker visual learners
4:37
I'm there are some drawbacks to it an
4:41
as you can see here an
4:44
this space is only so big if your risk its on
4:47
to be more than about 18 lines long on
4:50
you'll then have to starts crawling up and down through it and they can get
4:55
really busy on here
4:56
an again you could just see him out
4:59
and and one other drawback is that the only have
5:04
that reformat which can come to be a limitation
5:07
when trying to do some really serious work
5:10
an but other than that I think it's a great simple web 2.0 tool
5:15
and I would definitely suggest using this in your classroom
