Children are naturally interested in animals. Engage students in a real-world situation in this interdisciplinary unit. The board at the local zoo is adding one endangered animal and it is up to each student group to convince the board it should be their animal. Students are responsible for researching an endangered animal; writing a newspaper article; creating an effective visual presentation; and presenting an informative and persuasive oral presentation. Opportunities for cooperative learning, writing, revision, self-evaluation, and teacher feedback are provided throughout the unit.
