Project Wildlife

Project Wildlife

All three Special Education classes are participating in Project-Based Learning (PBL): Wildlife School. We have grades K-5, mixed ability grouping with about 80 students. This is a multi-year project.

Essential Question

What can SA STEM Magnet students create to disseminate accurate information to help our community co-exist with the black bears that live in our ecosystem?


Marzano’s Instructional Strategies, DQ2, 12:

Helping Students Record and Represent Knowledge


Analyze multiple accounts of the same event or topic, noting important similarities and differences in the point of view they represent.

NGSS Standard: MS-LS2-1:

Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.


With Much Appreciation, Our PBL Is Funded By

2019-2020 Trail Camera Photos

We placed one trail camera and left it there for 2 weeks. Students realized that it was not a good place as we only captured any animal on 4 times during this time. We'll conduct another habitat survey to find a better place for the camera.
