Product Description
How will your students react when they find our that their principal wants to turn the school into a zoo? This PBL includes four separate activities with that premise of wild animals being part of the everyday routine. School would still be a school, but there would definitely be some new residents attending.

On paper, students will be creating exhibits and enclosures within their classroom, the main office, library, and even the gym. They’ll be making decisions on how to create these animal habitats, including picking supplies, resources, and animals.

PBL & Jelly: Project Based Learning Activities jammed into bite-sized activities.

What Are These
These are miniaturized activities that focus on project based learning within primary grades. Most of these PBLs are 3-5 pages in length, with each having a driving question/idea for students to solve based on their own ideas and thinking. Two of the major components are drawing and writing, while keeping less of a focus on reading (within the PBL). Students are asked to solve issues with their drawings and illustrations, while providing reasoning with their writing.

The PBL can last anywhere from 45-90 minutes in length depending on the grade level. Most pages can take between 15-30 minutes to complete, including the writing, drawing, and discussions.

Companion Texts
Each PBL has a recommended companions texts that could be read to the class at the beginning of the lesson. Or these same books could be available for students to look through. Many of these books can be found in the library and even online.

Individualized Learning
One of the key tenants of project based learning is allowing the students to drive their learning. That’s why these focus on allowing students to make their own choices. By the end of each activity students will have completed a version that is unique and their own, based on their own abilities.

Multiple Content Areas
Project Based Learning includes multiple content areas (ELA, math, social studies, science) and these are no exception. They allow teachers to incorporate multiple content areas into a single lesson such as spiraling writing and science together or reading and social studies. Plus there’s the need for students to practice problem solving, making connections, collaborating with classmates, and sharing their findings (or creations).
