This is a foldable book, 5 x 3.75 inches, that is used for researching animals. I like to use it with databases on the Internet. Students find basic information on different animals, like weight, diet type, habitat, type of newborns, etc.
Also in the packet is a set of printouts to make 24 task cards. On the front of the card is space for you to type in your user name and password for your database. On the back of the card is the animal they will be researching. I have students randomly select one card a day to research. Page two of the booklet is a table of contents that students create as they do their research.
