Imaginative... forming mental images and concepts that are not perceived as real.

An imaginative student is able to deal resourcefully when faced with unusual problems.

Combine imaginative ideas with interactive tools.

Make it Authentic... We often focus on the endangered animals, but what about those animals that have survived? Celebrate a local animal. Tell its survival story. Then, invent an animal. How would it survive in your community? Tell its story. Use Build Your Wild Self or imagine something totally new.

Read the book Ubiquitous: Celebrating Nature's Survivors by Joyce Sidman to kick of exploration. Watch the YouTube book trailer.
