All students will use classification systems to describe groups of living things; compare and contrast differences in the life cycles of living things; investigate and explain how living things obtain and use energy; and analyze how parts of living things are adapted to carry out specific functions.
Learning looks like students engaged in something that interests them. It looks like a variety of things going all over the classroom. Perhaps it’s an art project in one part of the room, video editing in another, and some students cutting up magazines for a collage on another. Controlled chaos is the best environment for learning.
The purpose of this unit is for students to learn and understand how to compare and contrast. In the opening of the lesson a video will be shown to engage learners on the definition of compare and contrast. The students will see a visual of using a venn diagram. Throughout the unit, learners will have an opportunity to use online venn diagram and create their own.

With some 250 ethnic groups and over 450 linguistic groups, Nigeria can be a challenging country to understand. By dividing the country into three broad cultural regions, however, students can make generalizations about the diverse physical environment, ethnic groups, culture and economy of Nigeria.
