  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

Burrowing, ground dwelling mammals are known as fossorial mammals. Fossorial comes from the Latin fossor, meaning "digger", thus mammals such as groundhogs, gophers, moles, rabbits and others are in this group. If you are preparing a Science research / report assignment on these types of animals, this resource will guide students through their research and can be used as the end reporting tool!

How will this product 'guide' student research?

First, students are asked to identify the specific species they will study. Next, students will be asked to answer several questions which will guide them throughout the process. Sample questions (these are not the only questions):

  • What physical features allow the species to dig?
  • What advantages does this animal have over other animals?
  • Is the species diurnal or nocturnal?
  • How would you describe the social structure of the species?

Students will also be asked to give the full classification of their selected species, to draw a picture of it and to indicate on a world map where it resides.

The last page of the three page resource requires students to list the resources they used to complete their assignment.
