    Task2 Task2 Presentation Transcript

    • Authentic Task Term Two
      Our Fertile Question Was:
      DoWeLiveInA Human Zoo?
      Our Essential Question Was:
      How Can We make a difference in human society
    • The Zoo: This Is Your Life
      I found that the most useful piece of information when we were looking at the human zoo was the zoo this is your life DVD because it showed what happens in the zoo life with the animals and it gave me the knowledge I needed for making that comparison between animal life and human life and what the difference is. We learned about the lives of Rinos,Orangutans,Lions ,Elephants and Giraffes.
    • Human society and zooquestions
      We had to make up a series of questions to make our understanding of this task. We made them about the zoo and human society to understand and find out what this task was more about the zoo or about human society and we grouped them into blooms taxonomy groups.
    • Essential Question
      We did the same essentials question as the rest of the class. It was. “How can we make a difference in human society’’. I think that having the same essential question as everybody else was more convenient and we can use the same research devices.
    • Our Sub Questions
      We ended up doing our task on animal cruelty in New Zealand. Our two sub questions were: “What are the reasons people are cruel to their pets’’ and What animals are most commonly abused’’. These questions really helped us with our research and keywords.
      We learned about the animal cruelty and the zoo.
      Zoo Facts:
      A crocodile can stay in the sun for 8 hours max
      Big cats like lions and tigers have rounded pupils and domestic cats have slits
      In the wild elephants can live to up to 40 years and in captivity up to 60 years.
      Animal Cruelty Facts:
      The most commonly abused animal are dogs
      Every year 9 million chickens die in cadges
      Every year 1 billion animals are slaughtered (all of them healthy) by the leather company’
      Every year 100 million animals die in tests and experiments
      Every year up to 4 million cats and dogs are euthanized all of them healthy and adoptable
