Product Description

Take your Ecosystems and Biomes Unit to the next level with an Animal Research Project that can incorporate Project Based Learning! This resource allows you to choose the focus of your students' research: organisms/animals, habitats, biomes, or ecosystems. With the support of this Ecosystems research resource, your students will be ready to create a mobile museum that includes a research paper, slideshow presentation, 3D model of their organism, and/or a mural/backdrop of their ecosystem. These materials provide students with lots of opportunities to draw pictures and create diagrams, as well as record factual information and details about habitats, ecosystems, organisms, and their chosen animal.
