This term the year 7 Science class will be working on an exciting collaborative project with a class from New York. Mr Ardito’s Year 7 scientists will be sharing their knowledge about American animals, while our class share their knowledge of Australian animals. The goal is for each student to produce a design for a camouflage or “crittercam” that will enable a wildlife researcher to get up close to their chosen species. Students will need to research the structural, functional and behavioural adaptations of their organism and think carefully about the most effective way to study the creature’s habits. I have set up a wiki titled “Extraordinary Animals” and created a Voicethread, which students will add to (This is also shown below, with the echidna).
