Build Your Wild Self

Build Your Wild SelfThe Wildlife Conservation Society/New York Zoos and Aquarium has unveiled Build Your Wild Self, a fun tool that kids (and principals too!) are sure to love. Kids start by clicking the Body button and choosing their body (boy or girl) and skin color (from nine different skin tones that cover the gamut). Then they add their Hair, Eyes, Mouth, and Clothes. Then the Build Your Wild Self tool gets really cool! That’s when kids can dress up as their favorite animals by adding antlers, fins, tails, and more.

Let every kid use this simple technology to create his or her “wild self” and then write a story about the adventures they had the day they became a “deer-pig-gator” or whatever their wild self is called. Teachers can post the kids’ stories on a bulletin board or in a class book titled “Room 12: Where the Wild Things Are.”
