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.
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.
