Teacher Prep: I went to the library and checked out a TON of nonfiction books about animals. I wanted each animal to have at least 2-3 books so that my students would have plenty of research material.
After introducing what we were learning and doing, I had pairs of students come up and choose the animal they wanted to research. They worked together to read and research, but when it came to writing, each student was responsible for their own report.
Thank you for your download! Happy Researching! :-)
