Dear E-Mail Pal,
How can we teach the World about
Wow, our life-size animal
is finally done and it looks great! This took a ton of time and
effort but it seems from all the great comments and interest that has
been created in our life-size animal that it has really paid off.
Now, let's share our information that we have learned with the world.
We need to:
Review what we have
learned about our animal and the habitat that it lives in.
Write an essay to
educate others about our animal, it's habitat, environmental
problems facing our animal, and solutions that we can implement to
help our animal.
Create a web page
with our essay and a digital image of our life-size animal.
Post this web page
onto the Internet and then send our web address to OceanQuest.
Have you ever taught someone in you
class about something? How did you do that? What worked? What did
not work? How can we work what was successful with previous
presentations into this project?
OceanQuest has asked us to share what
we know about our animal,
it's habitat, environmental problems facing our animal, and solutions
that we can implement to help our animal with the National Commission
(Ocean Act 2000) and the rest of the world. They think that our
hard work just may convince others to develop a comprehensive policy to
save our animal and the ocean that it lives near or in. We will
need to create a web page to share our important findings with others.
