This hands-on research project features a print-and-go trifold brochure, and two styles of informational text where students can find all the needed content for the project. The 3-2-1 note-taking method is incorporated to teach kids how to use the text to find their information. Includes labeled elephant diagrams and blank student copies for them to create an original illustration. Vocabulary key terms are practiced in two different puzzle formats, offering varied difficulty levels and a fun approach. The puzzle comes with a storage pocket that attaches to the brochure to store the pieces. Also included is a "Mammal or Not a Mammal" anchor chart.
This project makes a great addition to any interactive notebook and comes with a brochure storage pocket--super easy to use.
