Our class is very excited to be starting our animal project with our American friends from Mr. Ardito’s class in New York. Each American student has chosen an Australian animal and each Australian student has chosen an American animal to research. Photos (from Flickr) of all the animals have been uploaded onto three Voicethreads. Students will prepare a report about the structural, functional and behavioural characteristics that enable their animal to survive. Then they have the option to speak to the Voicethread image or prepare a PowerPoint presentation to be posted on their blogs. (see blogroll at right – year 7’s). The wiki with all support materials is here.
