Whale Shark

Your students will probably be interested in learning about the largest fish in the world.
Here's an idea. Invite your students to draw pictures of whale sharks. Students can choose to draw on paper or with a drawing program like Kid Pix. (UDL)
They can give their whale sharks unique fingerprints. Upload their pictures in Flickr and have them use Flickr's Add Note tool to label the parts of the shark. Add these pictures to our group pool.
The only people who can add pictures to the group pool are invited guests.
Suggestion: Have a class Flickr account for this project.
Second Idea: Students can draw different sharks, label them and ask questions for group members to answer.
Can you think of other ideas? Let's do some brainstorming.
