I created this animal book report template to use with an enrichment group of 20 high-level first graders. Each student chose a nonfiction book about an animal. First, we looked at the table of contents, facts to know, and index. We then looked through the book for text features such as labels, captions, maps, bold words, and headings/subheadings. Each student then completed the animal book report template and shared their findings with the whole group.
