Sample Project: A Home for Everyone
This unit opens with a field trip to the local zoo. In this Project-based Learning experience, students explore their local environment and describe conditions within a habitat that are beneficial for living things and those that are not good for living things. Individually, students will formulate and write a Habitat Report in which they introduce their chosen zoo animal, their opinion for the best habitat, and supply reasons that support the opinion, and provide a concluding statement or section. As teams, students will create and present their Habitat Plan "Sales Pitch" to zookeepers and local zoology students/professors as a team. Students will collaborate with local recycling agents, local zookeepers, and local zoology students to perform research to help support their opinions.
