How I Use It
I used this for some lessons that I did with the book called Where the Wild Things are. The students made a book with an acrostic poem, a plot summary, a word cloud on setting adjectives, and finally made their wild self with this website sponsored by the Bronx Zoo.
My Take
The kids loved it and were very engaged. The build-your-wild-self site was easy to use and allowed students to create for various projects. There were a few times were the website wasn't accurate. A student might click on elephant but get butterfly wings instead but it was easy enough for students to work around that issue. This was a great tool for my teaching resources but the Bronx Zoo has chosen to remove this interactive and it is no longer available.
