Compare and Contrast Writing / Informational Writing and Research / BUNDLE
With these engaging projects, students will learn about different animals, write informational papers about them, compare and contrast the animals, and write compare and contrast papers.
These fun research projects can be used throughout the school year. Included are Bats vs. Owls, Polar Bears vs. Penguins, Sharks vs. Dolphins, and Butterflies vs. Frogs.
The projects could be implemented in several ways:
-For younger students, they could be a whole class shared/guided reading and writing projects.
-Older students could conduct their own research with books and online resources, possibly in a reading/writing center.
