Challenge students to use their critical thinking skills to create a new zoo animal and determine its habitat. Using the website www.switcherzoo.com, students combine heads, legs, tails and bodies to create a weird zoo animal, take a screenshot of it and make a poster featuring their new animal and a description of its habitat and how it survives and hunts in it. This lesson plan can be applied to 3rd, 4th or 5th grade students. Out of the one assignment you can get grades for 3 different subjects: technology, language arts, and science.
