At the beginning of this assignment we arranged ourselves into teams of four and five. All teams are to actively collaborate online, this is to make the most of social collaboration and gather a larger variety of credible information. As a team we have split our topic of The Planet Earth, into sub topics which included the countries of Australia, Asia, Africa and America. The themes we have chosen for these topics are seasons, animals, vegetation's, and rivers. Our goal is to successfully research these sub topics and themes using credible information. We have now presented this information using the online publishing tool 'Prezi' which we believe is easy to access and navigate. ANIMALS * The north regions are rich in Brown Bear, Otter, Lynx, Sable and Birds.
* Wild Sheep and goats are found in the highland.
* Tibet is famous for the wild Yaks.
*South West Asia is scarce of wildlife except for Jackals and Hyenas.
* In the East and South East Asia there are Monkeys, Indian tigers, Birds, Snakes and Lizards.
