This animal research report is Common Core friendly. It's aligned with the CCSS and can be used for Science and/or Language Arts (Writing) class. It's different from ordinary animal research reports because it adheres to the CEEL writing format, i.e. claim, evidence, explanation, link. It scaffolds and includes an example so that all students can successfully write complete, thorough paragraphs. The color-coding component will also help your SpEd and ELL students.
