I used this project as a culminating activity for my animal unit. Students were expected to pick an animal and research the following: name, classification, characteristics, life cycle, habitat, diet, predators, other interesting facts.
This worked well with my group of Grade 2s, but could easily be adapted for other grades!
This file includes:
- a student outline for the project
- brainstorming chart
- strategy for note taking and organizing information
- sample dot jots and paragraphs for an animal
- handout for rough copy of paragraphs
- template for published copy.
Each student created a book about their animal which was shared with the class and added to our classroom library. Great cross-curricular tie in to expository writing!
Students also created a diorama of their animal's habitat using the information they'd found!
I have included both .PDF and .doc files so that you are able to edit them to fit your needs!
