What educators are saying

So much fun. My students really enjoyed this project. I liked how hard they worked and the amount of time they were engaged.
I used this resource at the end of the year as a project for the kids. It was engaging and the kids were able to share information about the dog breed they learned about.


Make ELA FUN with this hands-on animal research report that is also an informative writing guide! Reading comprehension passages and graphic organizers are included. If your students love dogs or if you do an animal unit, they will also love using this report template to plan. This research project will help to build their research skills and they'll be begging you to write!
