PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This informational writing research project allows students to research and write about animals to create their own book. Students love researching animals and feel proud and excited to complete their own nonfiction book!

This unit includes structured recording sheets for writing about different aspects of animals habitats, food, body and fun facts. The unit includes simple nonfiction reading passages/articles on zebras, lions, alligators and pandas. These reading passages are perfect to use during whole groups, guided reading or as small research groups and allow for scaffolding during the research process. As a fun bonus there are "how to draw" worksheets for each of the animals.
