2 You are finally home from your exotic trip with the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. He took you all around the world showing you amazing animals and their territory. You went from being Eskimos in the Polar Regions to running from Cheetahs in the Grasslands. Steve Irwin took you from one end of the earth to the other. What an exciting journey! When you thought you had enough, the Crocodile Hunter himself asked for a huge favor from YOU. He was extremely upset that you two were not able to get any film footage of the dangerous encounters you had with the animals in the different regions of the world. So....he would like for YOU to make a guide for future adventurers like yourself! INTRODUCTION HOME INTRO TASKPROCESSGRASSLANDRAINPOLAREVALUCONCL CREDITS TEACH

Mr. Irwin wants to make sure the future adventurers are well informed about what they may face during their adventure. He would like you to tell the adventurers about the different animals and their habitat. Even try to relate the animals with the area they inhabit. The Crocodile Hunter said if you were able to do all of this…well…you may be able to star in his next movie, The Crocodile Hunter and His Cricky Partner.
