PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Project Based Learning for ELA, Science, Tech. Shark Security Force!
Get back in the water and save the world.

This project can integrates elements of research, ELA, science, technology, design, and planning as students learn about sharks from all around the world.

There are 33 activities (1 page for each) for students to complete. Each page involve an issue or topic they must solve, design, create, or research.

This project is broken into two sections: Shark Research and Shark Security Force.

Shark Research:
This includes 10 sharks, conservation, endangered lives,
food webs, geographical locations, and general knowledge.

Shark Security Force:
This part of the project allows students to create their own super-shark spy team. It will involves lots of creativity, imagination, and collaboration. This project is based on their own designs and creations. There is no limit to the possibilities.

This project integrates elements of research, design, technology, science and planning as students learn about sharks and create a team of sharks the protect the oceans and environment.

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.
