These Bloom's activities have been specifically created to enhance learning about Australian animals in the classroom. Using this framework will help to encourage students to use higher order thinking skills. It will enable them to use their knowledge of Australian animals in fun and practical ways rather than just writing or research activities. The activities focuses on conservation for native animals and protection from feral and introduced species.
One of the Evaluative task will have students writing a persuasive letter to the council for efforts to manage feral cats in the community. These letters could be used as an English assessment or sent to the council. If they reply, this will enable your students to see how "real world" this experience can be and inspire them to be environmental advocates in the future.
I love using Blooms Taxonomy Framework because it is such a great tool for higher order thinking. It is a good way to promote organisation of knowledge into meaningful and new creations, which is what is needed once they leave school. It is great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. The framework allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to complete at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
