Brief DescriptionForm an art agency and try to secure the job of creating a children's book about endangered species.
Endangered species, art, book, animals
In educator Frances Zamorano's Illustrating Endangered Species WebQuest, students work in groups of three to research art and endangered species online. As employees of an imaginary art agency, the students create and submit samples of a children's book about endangered species in an effort to obtain the job of making the entire book.
Note: While this is a WebQuest activity, creative teachers whose students do not have Internet access could adapt the activity to make use of library materials.
Student work must meet "editor's proof specifications" on the site. A rubric is provided.
