Extinct animal note taking sheet, paragraph checklist that students can use to self-assess, and rubric for final project
I use this in my 3rd grade classroom. Students research an extinct animal (I like to use enchantedlearning.com for this project), draw an illustration of the animal in its environment, and type an informational paragraph. Students are able to self-assess throughout the project by using the checklist and rubric. This is a great final project for my life science unit, as the research reviews many of the topics students have learned.
