Item description

This resource is perfect if you want something exciting for a
project-based learning unit about African animals. A biomimicry
approach, with its focus on functions and strategies used by animals,
will help your students develop a deeper understanding of the importance
of protecting wildlife.

Animals such as zebras and rhinoceros are not
only stunning they play vital roles in the ecosystem. Also, they can
help us solve problems and provide inspiration for new ideas. Your
students will have a fantastic time using their learning about African
animals as inspiration for design challenges.

product is absolutely the favorite one I have purchased all fall! I
love the information that is provided about bats – just enough to
intrigue and encourage higher level thinking. There are graphic
organizers, worksheets, and subtle suggestions to help young learners
perform at their best! And best of all, it stretches their
creativity! Thanks for such an amazing resource!”

Why am I qualified to write these biomimicry resources? I
was a member of BEN – Biomimicry Education Network – and a curator
of educational resources at BEN. I am the author of the book
Biomimicry with Theo & Tuva: Nature spotting inspires wild ideas.
In 2015, I completed a course in Biomimicry: A Sustainable Design
Methodology at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I took
part in the Biomimicry Design Challenge in 2021.
