Grade Level: 2nd - 3rd
Time Required: About 1 week
Description: With a partner, students will research an animal from an assigned animal group (amphibians, birds, fish, mammals, or reptiles). All of the resources required are linked to the WebQuest, so computers with internet access are required. A selection of
books listed in the WebQuest is also recommended. Students will then create a presentation and present to the class. As a final activity, partners will work together to create a zoo animal habitat exhibit that looks as close to the animal’s natural habitat as
possible. A grading rubric is available for the teacher’s use, as well as suggested readings, extensions, and ideas for differentiation.
