Did you know that bats are important to our ecosystems? This project based learning unit involves 21st Century Learning, science, research, writing, making a video, and STEM. Without bats, our ecosystems will not work. Because bats have such a unique sensory abilities, they can also be studied to learn more about diseases that effect us, like blindness and deafness.

In this pbl unit, students will research to learn more about the importance of bats, their habitats, and how they can help us. They will learn about things we can do to help conserve our bat population. This includes making a model of a bat house. (I’ve included links to make a real bat house.)

I’ve included Google Slides™ which can be used with the unit. Teachers, implement the slides activity as your students do their research.
