Students will first learn how to use the text features in informational text including the table of contents and index. They will also learn how to find credible sources on the internet. Then, students will be assigned a habitat (and optionally, a partner or group to work with). Students will have a Animals and Habitats Explorer Research Journal that they will use as a guide as they research about their assigned habitat. Then, they will choose an animal from their habitat to research. Editable sections have been added to the research journals so you may add your own questions!
Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities: a terrarium of their habitat in a shoe box and a written habitat and animal report. Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the "Habitat Fair" where your students can show off their terrariums.
