Product Description
Want to help your students learn how to research animals but aren't sure how to scaffold it to best support their needs? Encourage your kinders to research and write with these simple template sheets perfect for your winter animal studies.

Each animal includes 4 Sheets

★Informational Facts Graphic Organizer with bullets to teach animals "can", "have", and "are"

★Writing Paper to encourage students to illustrate and write a simple sentence or two after completing the organizer (great to collect for writing samples or assessments at conclusion of research unit)

★Investigation Sheet to encourage students to "predict", "illustrate", "measure", and "describe"

★Interactive Notebook Shutter Fold for each animal to keep in science journals

You probably won't get the chance to actually touch and measure the real winter animals :) I bring in a stuffed animal or toy version of each one as we study it and have it in the surprise bag. Students guess what animal is in the bag by reaching their hand inside and using the clues they can feel. Then I bring it out and we discuss it. We look at videos and books to learn about the nonfiction ideas about the animal. Then we use these sheets to build a nonfiction book of our own to keep in book bins for read to self. This is just a quick sample of some nonfiction work I do with my kinders. I hope you enjoy!
