Your Process


You will team with one other student to complete this quest to answer the 
questions:
How are exotic animals a threat to public health, and Should wild animals be taken in as pets?

Before starting the process, it is important that you are familiar with vocabulary words you will hear and see during your viewings, readings and research. Click here for a list of vocabulary words and definitions.

The process includes the following:

1. You will conduct a questionnaire and survey on whether or not wild animals should be taken in as pets? The data will be organized and the results displayed on charts or graphs using Microsoft Excel.

2. You will watch a video clip by a CBS resident veterinarian for primary source information on the topic.

3. You will interact with media tools to gather details and complete a timeline of contagious diseases.

4. You will visit Internet sites to research the topic of exotic diseases transmitted to humans and native animals by exotic animals.

5. You will then use Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, or other software, to write to inform/educate others on the health threat of exotic pets in the form of a published brochure or an electronic children’s book.
