This project is the perfect way to assess your students' understanding of animal adaptations! It integrates higher-order thinking and writing/language arts as students choose a biome, and then create a fictional animal to live in that biome. They will give their animal physical and behavioral adaptations that will help it survive in its environment. After creating their animal, they will illustrate the animal living in its biome, then write a magazine article describing the new discovery.
Included in the bundle:
*Detailed Lesson Plan
*Detailed, step-by-step instructions for students
*Guided Notes to help students develop imaginary animal
*Template for writing a rough draft of the magazine article
*Sloppy copy page to illustrate animal in its habitat
*Publishing page(s) with 2nd page option for magazine article
*Cute and colorful front/back cover for magazine to add to class library
