Teach students how to research a topic with this animal report project. Included in this download are the directions and information-gathering worksheet students need to conduct research on an animal of their choice and put it together for a presentation. The download also includes a grading rubric, list of supplies needed, and suggestions for the teacher.
While students complete their research by standard methods, the finished product is completed using a manilla file folder, letter-size envelopes, and index cards. This form helps students focus more on the research than writing a lengthy report. Students read the information they discover to their classmates when they are done.
I've used this project for several years and the students always love it! It's a great introductory research project.
