In this two-week unit provided by Teaching Sunshine, students will work collaboratively to research animals that are native to an assigned continent. Then, each student will work individually to design a zoo habitat for one of their continent's animals. Students will create a scaled blueprint of the habitat and will use research skills to defend their reasoning for creating their particular habitat. The project culminates with a Zoo Celebration, wherein students explore and evaluate each other's zoo habitats. This product contains detailed instructions as well as examples, student response sheets and rubrics for assessing in both science and mathematics.
