During IT, G1c rounded of their animal unit by creating their own animal. As our designated habitat this unit was the desert, the animal needed to have certain characteristics that would help them survive in this environment. Humps to store water, tails that provide shade, tongues to ‘smell’ food, big ears to cool off, camouflage, tails that detach when in danger and long tails to help you ‘stand up’ to look for danger were some of the creative ideas the students came up with. The students even had to find an original name for their creature!
