Invent an Animal Project. This is a culminating project designed to be done at the end of an animal unit.
The student will need to invent a new animal and use higher level thinking skills to describe specific details about its class, habitat, diet, appearance, etc.
They will be required to make a 2-D or 3-D model (poster, diorama, etc.) of their animal and place it in its habitat. I have provided a variety of links to help the students learn how to create these models.
I have left the introduction and instructions as a PowerPoint presentation so you can display it to your class. It also makes clicking on the links a much easier process.
The guided questions are in PDF format.
It comes with a rubric. The rubric is a word document in case you would like to edit or revise it.
Check out the preview to get a better idea of the project.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
