Students will really enjoy creating a blue print of their zoo.
Choose 12 different animals from the list to include in your zoo. You may have up to 3 of each type of animal in each exhibit. You will need one building for restrooms and one building for food and beverages.
Figure out the amount of square footage you will need for each animal exhibit.
Use grid paper to draw the layout or blueprint of your zoo.
Label all the exhibits, the restrooms and food pavilion. You may give each exhibit a name. Example: Tiger Town
Complete the Area and Perimeter worksheet.
Teacher notes, Scoring Rubric, and Extension Activities are included in this project.
"Your town has decided to use an empty lot to build a zoo. You have been hired to draw up the plans! That means that you must design the layout of the zoo. There are specific requirements that must be followed. You will use your creativity and your knowledge of area and perimeter to complete this project. This is a big task and the town’s mayor has chosen you to complete it. Good luck!"
