This is a one-day activity that allows students to use their own devices (or as a computer lab activity) to research the new mascot of Merryweather High School, the wombat.
Students will answer questions about the common wombat then use that information to write a short-answer/open-ended response. For this question, I included directions for APE (answer, prove, explain). A text box is included in the standard format for STAAR EOC's.
An answer key is also provided.
This activity is centered around Part 2, the section titled "Wombats Rule!" in the novel Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
