Unit - Animals and Us
Designing a brochure to“Save the X”.
Students researched the Worldwildlife website and other websites to select an animal which they considered endangered or in need of “saving”. They worked in groups to find and select the information they wanted, identified the causes of the problem, and besides presenting existing measures to address the issue, also came up with some of their own solutions and recommendations. One group selected the Siberian tiger, another the dolphin, and last group chose the wild lama. The text was relevant and informative, and the accompanying graphics were impressive. Students developed the ATL skills of research, social interaction, thinking and communication. They also presented the content of their brochures orally to the rest of the class.
