Product Description
Your students will love this Ecology Project - mine sure do! It focus on how local people groups impact the environment and particular species of endangered animals that live there.

I call this the Rare Pride Campaign project. The objective is for groups of students to COLLABORATE and create a campaign that aims at changing the hearts and minds of the community around which an endangered species lives.

In order to do this, your students will have to research their given (or chosen) endangered species to learn about their habitat, what niche they fill in the food web of that area, and what specific human actions are threatening them.

But then they have to take their knowledge and do something with it! They will have to THINK CRITICALLY to CREATE a campaign that will touch the hearts and change the attitudes of the people who live around these endangered animals. They will learn a bit about psychology and how to change behavior through COMMUNICATION and taking the needs of local peoples into consideration.

This project is one of my favorite ways to incorporate GLOBAL AWARENESS into my curriculum. Each student group will research a unique endangered species living in a different area of the world. Students will have to get to know that part of the world, the people, and the culture so they can find out how that community is impacting that endangered species.
