Includes free assignment page for students to create a shoebox diorama and habitat, and a simple research page. Students have to find out how big their animal gets, what it eats, other plants and animals in their habitat, and 3 interesting facts about their animal. A great first science project! My first and second graders had a great time doing these.

I was touched by these kind words from a mom: "Mike was pretty excited to do the project. He really enjoyed painting the inside of the box, tearing the fiberfill into clouds and gluing the animals in place. We only purchased a calendar for the background and a set of rainforest animals. Everything else we found in/or around our house. What was best about the project was he got to work with me on purchasing and painting, his dad on finding things outside and putting them in the box, and his sister even helped him with some research. It was fun to watch him make the decisions on what he did and did not want to use in habitat and where he wanted to place things. Thanks for bringing out the creative, yet investigative side of Mike. Once he got going, it was challenging to bring things to a halt and finish."
