Our school’s Stage 3 students are about to commence a Guided Inquiry HSIE/S&T unit on endangered animals that goes beyond their in-class work on rainforests, and I’ve been searching for WebQuests that we can adapt to suit our first attempt at Guided Inquiry. Yesterday, I set up a new Edublogs site, in which the five classes will share their findings.
So far, in my quest to find a suitable WebQuest, I’m more impressed with the one at Zunal.com, although I need to get some additional “deep thinking” potential into it. However, the site has already led me to some interesting and probably very useful Youtube video clips:
Wildlife of the Amazon rainforest (Britannica.com)
Rainforest animals and plant life in the rainforest
This one, “The *original* rainforest rap“, does not permit embedding.
These clips should also be useful:
The rain forest song
Save the rainforests
Some exciting recent animal discoveries are HERE!
