What is the Digital Story Telling Project?

Your goal for this unit is to understand the differences between the basic needs that all living things need to survive. You will also understand that living things are found all over the Earth, but each is only able to live in habitats that meet their basic needs.

During this unit, you will work on researching about one of the habitats. Either the ocean, the desert, the rain forest, the arctic, or the freshwater habitat. It is the goal of the project for you to learn how to research using books and computers as well as take notes on the information you have gathered. For the presentation of the project, you will be required to take the information you have learned on your habitat and make a digital story presentation to present to the class.
