Looking for a fun way to teach your students how to research and write informational pieces? Look no further! This unit will help your students research, take notes, organize information, and plan their writing. This unit contains the materials necessary to write an informational book, paragraph, or informational poster about an Arctic Animal. The pages in this unit are for whales, polar bears, and penguins, with several blank pages included if your students (or you!) want to research something else.
This unit has been used (successfully!) in my own first grade classroom, and my students were so excited and engaged. They loved creating their own colorful, fact filled posters and informational books with text features! This unit is perfect for beginning a unit on informational writing or a final activity to complete your unit. Though I used this in first grade, it could be used with second or third graders with varying degrees of independence.
