This project is a student-guided research project that incorporates ELA and Science standards. Students research an animal of their choosing, then use the research to create an informational text on the animal. Students will use and create text features such as the table of contents, glossary, labels, captions, and photographs. Additionally, students are asked to summarize the information found on animal's appearance, habitat, diet, forms of protection, and family.
This packet includes: Teacher directions, student research guide, animal research booklet, and a rubric for grading.
