A Webquest for Grade 2
Harrison Public Schools
G'Day mates! You have been chosen to help your school design a new zoo.† Each class will choose an animal they would like to have brought into the zoo.† It is your job to research the animal so that the zoo will have all of the resources that it needs to take care of your animal choice.† Your Gifted and Talented class has been assigned the kangaroo. It is your job to learn everything there is to know about kangaroos using this webquest.† When the webquest is complete, you will present your kangaroo research to the teacher and the class.
Since it is very important for zoos to be able to take care of the kangaroo, we need to find out all about it.† We are going to find out where kangaroos live and their habitat, what they like to eat, where they like to sleep, what they look like, and some other characteristics and interesting facts about them.†
