This is one of my favorites! Each student (or pair of students) gets a packet and a random assortment of 12 animal crackers. They need to then design a zoo full of biome and needs appropriate exhibits for these animals. The project requires research, creativity, and many other skills. The students create the zoo exhibits using markers/crayons on a large white sheet of paper and then glue in the animal crackers into each exhibit!
The packet is 18 pages long and takes the students step by step through this amazingly fun project!
Great for a review of the needs of living things, biomes, and design process!
