This is a great project for students to compare structures in a variety of animals (GLE 35) and for students to classify groups of organisms based on common characteristics (GLE 38)
There are 3 parts to this project. Part 1 is a group project where students make a poster to help a zoo group mammals, reptiles, insects, birds, fish, and reptiles based on similar characteristics.
Part 2 is an individual part. Students create an animal plaque to describe a specific animal in a given group.
Part 3 is an individual part. Students write a paragraph to compare their animal group to another animal group.
Attached is a rubric, guidelines/ my directions for the project, the question sheet for the group part of the project and the student note sheet.
