Encourage reading, writing, science, comprehension, and independent research skills, with one interest based exercise. This worksheet can be used again and again.
Let your young students loose in the librabry, or have them choose an aimal book to read. They can choose an animal and answer the questions based on what they find in their books. While they might need some guidance the first few times, your students should soon learn to find information for themselves. If your students love animals, they can even make themselves a book full of simple research projects like these!
This is a simple sheet designed for beginning writers with an interest in animals. It can be used as an open ended research prompt, and also to encourage interest-based writing practice. The quantity of writing required is not excessive. There are handy lined blanks included to help beginning writers practice good letter formation.
The writer answers a few questions designed to help them think about the differences between animals, such as how they eat, where they live, how they move, and a special thing about each one. The sheet also includes spaces for your students to draw a picture of the animal, and of a baby animal of the same kind.
