An inquiry projects for students to research animals and their habitats for 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 Projects. The aim of this project is for students to inquire and research into different types of reptiles, amphibians, arachnids and insects from different places around the world. From this, students will need to find out what their habitats are so they can create enclosures and design a layout for a reptile house for the Five Wonders Theme Park.
- research different animals and their habitats
- use inquiry skills to research using different resource types
- create a blueprint using knowledge of length, perimeter and area
- Write promotional material for their reptile house.
