Animal research project reports make great end of the year activities or distance learning packets in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classroom. As you count down to the last week of school students stay focused and engaged about informational writing due to the high-interest topic: Animals! Whether you are doing a simple animal research report or a fully integrated science, reading, and writing unit, this resource includes the graphic organizer worksheets, templates, and other resources you need to successfully implement your goal in your classroom or virtual through remote learning.
I created this packet to provide my students with fun end of the year activities but ended up using it all the time in future years because the resources can be used over and over to study any animal.
