I used this in my fifth grade classroom this year with great success! After studying animal classification (S5L1 in the Georgia Standards), students got into groups to complete this task.
You will receive the rubric for the project and a student instruction page in this purchase.
They built made an informational zoo brochure with animal group characteristics and examples to demonstrate knowledge of classification. The map was a classification model of how animals were sorted into groups. This was used in place of a traditional paper/pencil test.
This product is included in a bundle of 5 project rubrics & instructions which can be found here:
5th Grade Classification Project BUNDLE
At $5.00, the bundle will save you a total of $1.50 (one rubric free)
This purchase includes both a .pdf file and an editable .doc version of the file.
