An at home, or at school, animal research project. Students use print and internet resources to pretend that they are a zookeeper learning about an animal. I have listed 39 animals that are currently at the San Diego Zoo.
Students pick one animal and take notes on that animal (weight, class, appearance, interesting facts, etc.
They then use their notes to write a report and create a poster board sized poster of their animal.
Students will share their report and poster with their classmates (fellow zookeepers).
I have included:
*A list of animals
*2 pages of topics students need to take notes on about their animal.
*A lined page for their written report
