This is a project that I did with my 5th graders while we were studying Africa. I broke the unit up into several sections and had the students do several projects along the way. The Mammals of Africa Project is the first of many that we did during this unit study. Students will select from a list of different mammals that are found on the continent of Africa and do research on them. Once they find the information they will write their answers on the enclosed form and complete the assignment before presenting it to the class. Students love to see their work displayed, so I take the completed reports and hang them outside the room for all to see. This is a project that can be adapted to any continent.
