Students had to identify the different classes of vertebrates. After conducting research to determine the features and characteristics of those animals, they then were tasked with creating a new species. Along with naming their new animal, students also had to identify its class and provide information about its habitat, physical features, behavior, and diet.
Lindsey Skinner, our science lab teacher that worked with the 2nd graders on this project, referred to it as a “powerful, cross-curricular project that the kids had so much pride in because they put in so much effort.”
Student Sydney Woods agreed and added that, “We felt great because we worked as a team.”
