Build Your WILD Self!

February 1, 2008

I was going through my Blogs today and ran across a post that contained a great new site!!


From this site, you can create your own Avatar. “An Avatar, SO WHAT??!!,” you ask. The fun part of this site is that your Avatar can be a regular person with Animal Parts. “An Avatar with Animal Parts, So What!!??,” you say. As you browse through the arms, legs, wings, eyes, etc. this site tells you exactly what it is (i.e. fenee fox ears) Once you have created your Avatar, this site will give you more information about the animal and how these parts are important.

As a former elementary Media Specialist, I remember students doing research for an animal project. How fun would it be to research and create your own animal!? This way you are learning about what types of “parts” an animal needs to survive in its environment. You can save your image, print it, email it to a friend, or save it as your desktop image.

Check out this site, and it also will direct you to New York Zoos and Aquariums.

Check out my Julia Fish, The Lio-ho-mon-ger-orse-ish-bird. Can you tell what parts I have? See below to find out!

    This is so cool. I had fun playing with it.

    This is a fascinating idea to use with a group of children. Thanks for showing it to us.
