Build Your Wild Self!

New York Zoos and Aquarium / Wildlife Conservation Society has an interactive game called Build Your Wild Self! Kids choose different body parts and limbs for their creature. Then, they choose a habitat. When they're all finished, the site describes each attribute they chose. For example, orb spider eyes: "You have six eyes, but you can't see very well. You use your keen sense of touch to track down prey." Have kids build their "wild self" and write a paragraph describing what they would eat, their animal's habitat, exceptional characteristics and talents, as well as their unique adaptations. 


  1. This site isn't working anymore! Any way to find out why?

    1. I have no idea! It's a shame because it would be awesome to use for an animal adaptation unit. Hopefully, it will go back up.
