Combine nonfiction reading, research, math, and science in one activity! Students can use this document to plan research and collect data on the weights of four different animals. On the recording chart, they indicate what each animal's weight was measured in (pounds, ounces, grams, or kilograms), and from what source they got the information. They use the data that they collect to make a graph to compare the animals' weights. Finally they answer questions about the graph and even make a question of their own for a friend to answer!
