Living Labels

labels1This is a great activity to introduce wildlife, to assess your students’ knowledge of Arizona’s wildlife, and to initiate research and writing activities for your class. A photo of an Arizona animal is placed on each student’s back. They must then walk around the room and ask other students “yes/no” questions in order to try to determine which animal they are.

 

The lesson is available as a downloadable PDF that includes ideas to extend and modify the lesson for different audiences.
