Learn amazing facts about many Arthropods ("bugs") by comparing and contrasting their Pokemon counterparts! Students will also learn how to construct and use Venn Diagrams.
▬▬▬▬▬▬ MODULE SUMMARY ▬▬▬▬▬▬
This module consists of four Prezi (slide show) presentations which each take 45-60 minutes to complete in class. It also includes a "Make Your Own Pokemon" project, which can be assigned for homework, or done as a class project (adding 4-6 more hours of class learning to the unit). Some other extension ideas are also listed, if you want to reinforce your students' learning even more.
Need a break from teaching? Use the included recordings of me giving the presentation for you! (The "Instructions" file includes a link to the videos, hosted by Google Drive, which you can download from there.) Want to do it yourself? All notes are included so you can present the material however you want.
In each class, we study a group of "bugs" that have some striking similarities to Pokémon characters. Students will practice comparing and contrasting creatures from the Arthopod phylum when reading/listening to descriptions about them, viewing pictures side-by-side, and watching video clips of insect behavior and life cycles. We also learn how to create and use a Venn Diagram as a comparison tool.
