Product Description
Project Based Learning Activity: Endangered Animal Awareness, Build An App

In this PBL activity, students will create an app about an animal that is endangered. They will choose the animals, do research, and develop/design an app. The app will showcase how they can synthesize and share information to others.

This packet will walk students through the steps of designing the app. When it is complete each student will have their own personal version and vision of the app. There are also blank app pages for students who have other ideas that they would like to continue working on.

The app will be paper-based. Students will create a flip-book style app. However, they may choose to get creative and add more features (if you allow).

Each page will contain two parts:
The top half: RESEARCH.
-This will be for research purposes and students can write down information they find. It’s also for notes.

The bottom half: APP.
-This side will be for students to take the research and create a page for the app based on the content they find.

Students will also create an app cover, table of contents, and a credits page. The app may be created vertically or horizontally. There will be blank pages included for students that would like to add even more.

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.

All pages can be geared towards multiple grade levels, although for some younger students the teacher may need to give more explicit instructions.

Students may choose to use multiple resources to complete each page. They might even choose to work with a partner, but you get final say on that.

PAGE Title Contents
6 Title Page/introduction
Students learn that they’ll be creating an app to raise awareness for endangered animals

7 Animal Selection
Students brainstorm which animals they would like to research and learn about.

8 Create the Cover
Students create a cover for the app. They may choose to complete this at the end of the project after they have learned about the animals.

9, 10 About the Animal
Students do research on the animal, then design/create the app page using information. There are two pages in case one is not enough.

11 Where in the World
Students fill in the world map showing where the animals are found. They may add any other details they feel are necessary.

12, 13 Threat Level
Students research how and why they are endangered, then they transfer the information to the bottom portion for their app. This is two pages and includes how they are being helped/saved.

14 Conservagram
Students use the social media app, Conservagram, and share two photos of the animal in their natural habitat.

15 Table of Contents
Students create a table of contents for all the pages they used in their app. This should be completed at the end, so they know all the pages they’ve done. It can be placed second (behind the cover) when the app is put together.

The CREDITS page is the FINAL page. Students will create a page with credits such as who they are, what they used for research, and anything else that needs to be credited.

This is a set of extra pages for students that would like to continue.

18, 19 Problem Solver
Included are two pages of reflection questions for students to think about and answer regarding their animal, conservation, and saving the environment.
