Making a wiki webpage




Have you ever looked up information for research and found that it just is too hard to understand? Let's help the elementary grades find information that they can understand! Your task is to choose an animal, gather information and write it in this webpage for younger children. Let's help them to learn about an animal without getting frustrated!

1.

  • Choose the animal you would like to research
  • Find out the following information:
  • Habitat
  • Diet
  • Predators
  • Fun facts
  • Add pictures - Make sure they are NOT copyright protected. Go to
  • Put all of this information on your wiki space.
  • Make sure you check spelling, look, etc. - the public WILL SEE THIS!!
  • Add links to the websites you used, including picture websites (you need to give credit to your sources)



2.

  • Choose an animal you will edit
  • Confirm the information on that wiki space
  • Make changes as needed.
  • Add information -
  • What they look like
  • How do they care for their young?
  • Life span (how long do they live?)
  • Are more pictures needed?
  • Add links to the websites you used, including picture websites (you need to give credit to your sources)



3.

  • You will be graded on:
  • Your research
  • Your presentation - will a younger student find this space helpful?
  • Your editing of someone else's web page - were you honest? timely?
