I print this on card stock and then laminate. I place it on our Zoology shelf as an extension to the 'Tree of Life' lesson or as challenge work, for those who have finished early. The student copies the sentence starters from the card into their research journal. (This is great for penmanship practice.)They may use reference books or animal cards to complete their research. Once the research is complete they may draw a picture of the animal or they may sculpt the animal with modeling clay.
