As a culmination to the unit, “How the World Works”, students had the opportunity to use Spore Creature Creator to design animals which were to have certain characteristics that would allow them to survive in a specific habitat. For example, if a student was given the task to design an animal for a polar habitat, a heavy, white coat of fur and perhaps sharp claws and teeth would be appropriate for a carnivore. Students understanding of such concepts could be clearly demonstrated in this activity, as well as a vast range of ICT skills including organizing, communicating and creating.
This slideshow is a teacher created sample of some of the steps involved in creating a Polar Bear.
