I'm calling on the collective knowledge of the classroom 2.0 community to help me brain storm an interesting activity to engage my high school biology students during our field trip to the Zoo. I would like to do some kind of scavenger hunt, but don't want to do an old school paper version. How can upgrade the scavenger hunt using web 2.0 tools?
One of my (severe) limitations is that I don't have any class time to devote to this project after the field trip. Whatever is done would need to be by the students simply at home.
To narrow the focus down a little bit, I think I would like to incorporate facebook somehow. One idea I had was to give students a list of animals to photograph using their digital cameras and phones and then post them onto facebook. What I'm struggling with is what I want the students to do after that. Should I have them tag the animals with the scientific name, or ????. Help please!
