During phase three, children revisited and recalled the learnings, explorations, experiences of the entire journey of the Project. Children also shared their likes & dislikes from the project journey. Finally they represented their ideas in the form of a 3D model.
Children's verbatims were recorded by the teachers and the information shared by them during the different phases of the project was represented in the form of a web.

Model making process
After days of extensive exploration through various activities such as group discussion, sensorial activities, field trips, art and facts from online research, children were now equipped with more information and knowledge about Animals.
Their individual models reflected their learning as well as experience which they gained throughout the period of exploration. It was observed that throughout the project, many children were more intrigued to know more facts about tigers which led to further detailed study through online research.
So with one group deciding on making models of tiger and the other a zoo, it was mutually decided that together they would create a zoo with different animals including the tiger as part of it.
During the discussion about model making children shared their views and imagination and said, "Hun tiger na vaad (Hair) banavis ane jewelry pan banvis", "Ma'am hun che ne giraffe ne cage ma rakhis" and one of them said, "Mein zebra ka cage banaungi."
Meanwhile, for making their individual model, they decided on materials to be used and shared, "Mein legos se jungle banunga", "Hun paint kari ne jungle grass banavis", "Hun paper upar colour kari cut kari ne sun banavis."
Some made tiger with clay, legos, cardboard, paper and plastic glass, some painted grass with green poster colour for jungle whereas few of them made cage with ice-cream sticks and folded paper to make 3D zebra and giraffe.
One of them painted a bottle to make crocodile. For the features of tiger few of them used ice-cream sticks to make stripes on tiger's body whereas few painted, some used clay and coconut husk for hair, tassel for tail and artificial nails as a accessory.While creating their models they faced many challenges to give shape to their models but they came up with the solutions themselves and made their models.
Teachers assembled the individual models made by children to create a zoo.
