Snake Search! Around the World
Project Based Learning: Research, Explore, & Slither
This project integrates elements of research, ELA, technology, design, and planning as students learn about snakes from all around the world.
There are 22 activities
(1 page for each) for students to complete. Each page involves an issue or topic they must solve, design, create, or research.
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 user’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.
There are 24 printable pages
. Hand them out one at a time or staple them all together at once. Choose whichever way works best in your classroom. I prefer back-to-back with staples on the side like a book.

Informational page where students find out what they’ll be learning.
