The local zoo needs help. They want to add more bats, but they don’t know what kind. They need you to figure out which bats would be the best for the zoo. Zoo officials also want students to create a NEW bat exhibit!
Pocket PBL: Bats
integrates elements of research, animals, science, design, and planning as students learn about bats while deciding how to create the perfect zoo exhibit for bats. There are 13 activities for students to complete. Each page involves an issue or topic they must solve, design, create, or research.
The Pocket PBL pages are half-page and sheets can be stapled together to form books/packets. Users can mix and match pages or do them all based on their needs.
The entire PBL is interchangeable to meet many needs and differentiated among students.
-Pick the pages
-Cut them in half
-Staple (top or sides)
-Start the Pocket PBL
As students work through each page, they will make their own decisions and choose the outcomes based on information they learn. By the end, all students will have completed the project, but each version will be based on the creator’s imagination, creativity, and knowledge base.
