All of my students LOVE animals, so we took that LOVE and my desire for them to WRITE MORE and put them together. They were highly motivated.
There are four parts to this project:
1.Picking an animal to research and then writing about that animal with a guided research page.
2. Writing a short story with the animal a key player in the story and using a plot plan to develop their story.
3. Writing an "About the AUTHOR" - which is a page or two about themselves as the author of this project.
4. Designing the front and back cover with photos and then binding the Animal Project into a book.
