To begin with, students were invited to try different formats including a Linnaeus Facebook page, a podcast where Linnaeus saves a Metropolitan museum from closing with his brilliant organizational system, and more. The guiding principle was to provide a few ideas for students and allow them to creatively expand and express their ideas. It was exciting to see some students embrace role play, having Linnaeus explain his system in character. One group of students went so far as to create a puppet show video with a full set with bears, squirrels, snakes, and starfish explaining why each belonged in their respective taxa. I asked to post their video, but the students being as modest and shy as they are asked that I provide screenshots instead.
What follows is a gallery of (anonymized) student work with my not-so-anonmymous comments and response to their work.
