Learning and talking about animals we like.

What information do we need to find ? What do we want to learn about our favourite animals?
Let's brainstorm in the classroom and decide what information we'll look for

We post our projects HERE. There's one page for each pair of students to post their projects about the Animal Kingdom

Our teacher shows us the file she's created with the ideas we brainstormed. She shows us the wiki where we will complete the file and upload videos and pictures. She also presents the example she has completed about the sea otter. Here she's talking about the size of the sea otters!

In pairs we have looked for pictures of the animals we have chosen and saved them to our personal files.

We have started editing our pages. We have written the name and scientific name of our animal and we have uploaded a photo and embedded it in our page.
