  • 1. Disappearing Organisms
  • 2. Disappearing Organisms
    Indicator 3.4.5 Give examples of some kinds of organisms that have completely disappeared and explain how these organisms were similar to some organisms living today.
    Taken from
  • 3. Definitions
    Organism: a living thing like a person, plant, or animal.
    Extinct: no longer living or existing.
    Grasslands: a large area covered in grasses and small plants.
    Compare: to find likeness between two (or more) things.
    Contrast: to show how two (or more) things are not alike.
    Domesticated: Tamed, like pets.
  • 4. Why Extinct?
    Different animals can become extinct (die out) for different reasons.
    For example the Moa Bird is believed to become extinct because it was hunted too much. The hunters didn’t leave enough of the birds to reproduce.
    No one can tell for sure why all the dinosaurs are extinct, but some people think it’s because an astroid hit the earth and killed them all. Some believe that there was a really long, cold period of time call an ice age that killed the dinosaurs because they froze to death.
  • 5. Why Extinct? Continued
    Plants and animals have become extinct because their habitat (where they live) is destroyed. Sometimes its destroyed by nature like a flood or forest fire. Sometimes habitats are destroyed by humans, when we build new parts of town, or pollute bodies of water.
    Sometimes plants and animals become extinct when what they eat becomes extinct. If they can’t eat they die.

  • 13. Your Story Continued
  • 14. Compare and Contrast: YOUR TURN
    For the next two slides the first section will have a photo and information on an extinct animal. YOUR JOB is to fill in the second half of the slide with an animal that still exists that reminds you of the extinct animal. Draw a picture and list details about why the two animals are both similar and different.
