This project based learning unit can be a two part project. One focuses on which animals can live in the zoo. In order to answer the question, the students need to know the type of environment animals come from. In this case, the animals were chosen by the students – one from each of the animal families: mammals, birds, reptiles, insects and amphibians.
This PBL was “piloted” on a pre-school and kindergarten class and we were amazed at their dedication to the project! Animals are a great theme to work with because they are a high interest topic for the majority of students and there is age level appropriate research material for pre-k and kindergarten students to work with. The second part focuses on the type of conditions found in a zoo. Are they ideal for all animals? Find out what the children come up with!
Feel free to email me if you have any questions about PBL’s. They are so much fun for this age group!
