What educators are saying

This resource was very easy for students to use. The layout is user friendly and really help students organize their research ideas. My students really loved doing this activity.
kids loved it and so did co workers. A few of them also bought this same resource after I showed it to them.


Primary students love to research and learn about animals! Use the graphic organizers and mini books in this resource to encourage the love of animal research and reports. You receive graphic organizers (webs) and mini books for 44 common animals. An EASEL version is also included. An editable version is included where you can change the categories.

The templates can be used with any books or websites that you have available to use. They work great with if your school has a subscription. This project is a very flexible learning tool, and there are SO many possible ways to use the webs and booklets.

Ways to use this resource in your classroom:

  • Traditional research Each student is assigned a different animal to research and write a report about.
  • Animal of the week Study a new animal each week (as a whole class or independently) all students complete a report of that animal.
  • Early finishers Make the webs and research booklets available for students to complete when they finish their work. This works great for your high achievers!
  • Centers The graphic organizers could be placed in your reading or technology center and mini books can be placed at your writing center. This would be easy to incorporate with “Animal of the Week”.

Bonus: You also receive a blank book template for additional animals. An 8.5 by 11-inch version of the project (without animal clipart) is also included.
