The purpose of this project is to provide a unit plan that focuses on concepts and theories utilized by an interdisciplinary approach. In the traditional system of education many students will go from class to class without ever realizing that what they learn in science could be applied to English or art. Also, educators are always searching for fresh ways to present information in order to keep their students motivated. Thus, the following project utilizes the novel Hoot as a focal point to help students understand various concepts related to the environment around them. This unit will attempt to also reach students who might not see science as their strongest subject by relaying the information in a creative way. The following Research Project contains an introduction, review of literature, methods, results and discussion sections.
