The teacher will explain that after students have chosen their creature they will create their own popplet to display information about their midnight zone ocean creature. 

Student Instructions

Students will choose one creature from the enchanted learning website and create popplet to share with the class. The popplet can be any information they feel is important for their classmates to know about their creature. Students will also create a test to test students on their creature.
