This Podcast is sample of a student-generated project that describes the basic characteristics of the Kingdom Animalia. Students are placed in cooperative groups and assigned one of the basic characteristics of the kingdom. (Skeletal, reproductive, method of fertilization, body symmetry,body coverings and locomotion) Students then research their characteristic and use digital cameras to collect pictures of animals that represent these traits. Students can also collect pictures from the Internet to complete missing representatives. Cooperative groups then work together to create a Podcast.
