Challenge Based Learning
Mrs. Caywood's Summer School Class
A Little Background Information:
Just 19 days ago we began a journey together to learn about the continent of Africa and learn how kids halfway around the world in Liberty, MO can make a difference in helping to share information about a range of topics affecting animals in Africa. Within this Smore' you will find a wide variety of presentations to show ways to Save the Savannah, decrease poaching, saying no to wildlife products, saving the Silverback Gorilla, and cutting down our carbon footprint.
Students participated in research activities and had to create a public awareness campaign for their topic that included information about their animal or cause, what is being done to help them, what can be done to help them, pictures/video, audio, and at least one primary source. I think you will see that they lived up to their end of the bargain and have realized the power of project based learning.
