Students will research an animal and create an animal flipbook. My third grade team has classes decorate the hallway to look like various ecosystems. Students then pick an ecosystem and choose an animal that lives in that ecosystem. They research the animal using a book and internet source. Students draw and cut out their animal with construction paper. They then attach the flipbook to the animal and hang it in its respective ecosystem in the hallway. This is a fun and creative approach to tie in science, research/technology, and creativity. My students love this project. I hope yours do as well!
