My students loved this project! In October we read articles about bats and then spiders from a variety of books, articles and online sources. I can’t wait to use this resource again when we study polar animals!
Inspired by the book series Who Would Win? by Jerry Pallotta, your students will research two animals. Students learn the difference between fact and opinion, compare and contrast physical and behavioural characteristics, ask and answer questions and learn scientific vocabulary as they go!
I Can ...
- ask and answer questions about the animals I read about.
- identify the physical characteristics of different types of animals.
- support my facts with the details I read.
- sort the facts I read about animals.
- compare the physical characteristics of different types of animals.
- form an opinion and then support it with a fact.
- use a highlighter to identify keywords and small phrases.
- identify keywords and make connections to the facts I have read.
- find information in different resources.
- use inquiry skills to identify and compare the basic needs, characteristics, behaviour, and adaptations of animals using keywords such as predator vs prey, insect vs arachnid.
