Following on from last weeks Digital Literacy lesson based around summarizing text I have created an extension task based around reading, summarizing and reporting on non-fiction text and then writing a report on an animal your students will create in in Switcheroo Zoo.

Your students will really enjoy the open-ended and creative nature of this task and is suitable for students of all ages.  You can either download the original PowerPoint File here or there is a slideshare below.
