Lesson 21 Video: MEA Entertaining Animals:

In this video,Â SaM-1 introduces a Model ElicitingÂ Activity (MEA) challenge for the students. This video provides background information on why and how animals need to be entertained. Students will have the opportunity to apply what they learned about physical properties and measuring linear lengthsÂ as theyÂ are asked to design a prototype toy for Florida panthers housed at the CPALMS Rehabilitation and Conservation Center.Â

In the optional twist, students will need to design a prototype toy suitable for a Florida panther with an injured leg. The optional twist also has a SaM-1 video to introduce the twist challenge.
