An inquiry project that encourages students to research animals and their habitats and design a reptile house in a theme park.
Welcome to Five Wonders Theme Park, the best theme park in the entire world!
This teaching resource is a part of our Five Wonders Theme Park Stimulus Project. The aim of this project is for students to inquire and research into different types of reptiles, amphibians, arachnids and insects from various places around the world. From this, students need to find out what the animals’ habitats are so they can create enclosures and design a reptile house for the Five Wonders Theme Park.
- research different animals and their habitats
- research different resource types
- create a blueprint based on their knowledge of length, perimeter and area
- write promotional material to advertise their reptile house.
