The project is designed on the topic Living Organisms around us.
1. Students should develop an understanding about the different habitats.
2. Students should know how animals adapt to different surroundings.
3. Students should be able to understand how the biotic and abiotic components interact with each other in their habitats.
1. The entire class is divided into 5 groups. Each group contains 9-10 students each.
2. Each group has a student coordinator
 Each group  will be given time to collect information relating to the topic and time allotted during science periods wherein mentoring and guidance to facilitate and consolidate their work and they will be presenting their    topic with the help of charts, PPTs, skits, activities etc. This will help to develop their 21 century skills like self confidence, public speaking, observational skills, critical thinking, problem solving, team work etc.

The‘what/ when/ where /how’ of the 7 phases in brief
Project plan
The Chapter was discussed in detail by the teacher in class.
The project was designed to make students aware of the different habitats that exist and how animals adapt to them.

The work was allotted to a team of ten students each. They were given time to collect information relating to the topic. Time was allotted during science periods wherein mentoring and guidance to facilitate and consolidate their work was done. They presented their topic with the help of models, charts, PPTs, skits, activities etc. This helped to develop skills like leadership skills, team work, reading skills, problem analysing, self-confidence, public speaking, observational skills, critical thinking, problem solving etc.

Each student collected extra information about this topic and shared with the other students of the class. The team members got an opportunity for interaction with peer group and also  developed skills of public speaking and gained self-confidence.

Learning Environment
Team was provided working space in junior science lab and computer lab where they had discussions. They also had online research facility in the computer labs. Library hour was aloted to collect information from magazines, books etc…………… Group discussions were conducted for knowledge sharing.
