Project Goal: Students apply what they have learned about animal characteristics and adaptation to engineer a new creature and introduce it to the scientific community.
Growth Task: For this project, students will be engineering a new creature! Students will need to introduce their creature to the community, sharing its name, appearance, physical and behavioral adaptations, prey and predators, and habitat. Each of these topics will need to be well thought through and presented.
This will be a fun project with a great deal of freedom for creativity! I used it throughout my Grade 3, Expeditionary Learning Module 2, Units 1, 2, and 3. A great extension into Project Based Learning and critical thinking!
