    This lesson has a good core idea: things that are pests in our homes/schools are animals that started with an outdoor habitat, and adapted to live with humans. However, that idea is developed inconsistently through the lesson, with rather a lot of reading rather than inquiry. There are standards mentioned, but we don’t see evidence of three-dimensional learning that we would expect in an NGSS aligned lesson.
