Project-based, problem-based and STEM all rolled into one great project! Students work cooperatively to design an animal enclosure for the zoo! Do your students have the imagination and creativity to design an exceptional animal enclosure while meeting the needs of their animal?
Students work in collaborative units to design a proper animal enclosure for their chosen animal. Their animal enclosures must meet the project requirements to be safe for the animals, the zoo keepers, and the visitors. The improvement phase of this project includes students giving helpful feedback to other groups. The students love using the peer reflection checklists!
