Zoo Exhibit Midterm Project
Standards Mastery Assessment
Have you ever been to the zoo? Going to the zoo is a great way to see and learn about living things from
around the world. Imagine you work for a zoo in your local city and have been asked to set up a new exhibit
entitled ​The Diversity of Animals​.
Your Task:​ Design an exhibit that highlights the different groups of animals in the animal kingdom and their
characteristics. Be sure to
-show the differences in shapes and forms of animals.
-show the similarities/differences in the ways in which groups of animals carry out basic life processes
(circulation, respiration, excretion, movement, response, feeding).
-design the exhibit so that it is clear and engaging to guests.
Your Product:​ Create a presentation detailing the setup (blueprint/map) of your exhibit and the key features of
each enclosure. Your product may be a poster, a diorama, an interview (recording or typed transcript), a
scrapbook, or a presentation booklet.
Your Timeline:​ This is a three-day project. You should budget your time accordingly.
Day 1: Complete all your research and map out the general direction of your project.
Day 2: Begin organizing and assembling your project.
Day 3: Complete the assembly of your project and add final touches.
Your project should be turned in on ​Monday, October 15​, at the beginning of class.
