Student Instructions

Design a blueprint for your new pet store.

Challenge: Design a blueprint for a new pet store. The animals in the pet store should be organized by classification... mammal, bird, fish, reptile, or amphibian. Criteria: • The student should include at least 10 different animals. • The blueprint must have the animals organized by classification... mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, and reptiles. • The habitat of each animal must be determined based on the physical size of the animal. The blueprint grid lines in the template will help you decide on sizes. Key: 1 cm. square = 1 ft. squared (a classroom tile) Three pages were given in the template, but you can add more by clicking the + pages in the bottom right corner of the template. • Students should label the animal habitats with animal names and prices. Prices should show your knowledge of supply and demand. If the animal is rare and difficult to supply and demand is high, how will this affect the price? If the animal is in high supply and low demand, how will this be shown in the price? • The blueprint should be neat and easy to understand. Don't forget to name your new pet store! • You can learn more about the pets for your pet store in the Economics Collection in Epic. Will the cost of supplies needed to care for the pet affect the price? Please see the example below. I was able to fold my laptop back to change it into tablet mode. In tablet mode, look for the keyboard icon in the bottom right corner of your laptop. Click the keyboard icon to get the emoji symbols for animals. If you don't have this feature on your laptop, a tablet or iPad will have the emoji symbols on the keyboard. If you like, you may complete the requirements for this project using paper and art supplies, then take a picture of your completed project in Seesaw. Use a ruler for habitat sizing. Have fun, take risks, and be creative. I'm ecstatic to see your designs!
