Researching Animals?

Rethinking the Animal Project:
  • Imagine getting a new exotic pet! Compare a Komodo dragon (or whatever) to a dog.
  • Interview candidates for your new school zoo. They explain what they need.
  • Match celebrities to an ideal pet. "What would Justin Bieber pick?"
  • Choose creatures for a new line of animal crackers. Shape, size, facts on box?
