With very little modification, all elements of the standard could be met.

Quality of Technological Interactivity: Superior (3)

Great use of exploration in World Book Kids while providing modeling for those unfamiliar with the resource.

This lesson is a great practice for second graders to research, evaluate information, and communicate through written paragraph(s) on habitats for a chosen animal. It allows for students to be grouped together as needs arise as well. Students should be introduced to World Book Kids prior to this lesson (although there is some teacher modeling). I appreciate the available student notes, teacher example of paragraph, and rubric to rate student's work.
One addition I would like to make is on the student notes, students could be encouraged to determine the temperature and participation of the habitat as well as type of habitat (water or land for example). These modifications could help better align to the standard. I would like to see student share their research with each other as well through an extension. This could be an oral sharing or a display in the classroom.
