Students can work on this project independently or with a partner. I have included different pages for students working independently and those working with a partner in the file.
For this project I personally have students work with a partner and each student does their own research and then they share and improve on their ideas before they begin their final report writing.
To start I have half of the students choose 3 animals they would like to research and then the other half of the class gets to pick a partner from those 3 choices.
I have included letter templates at the end of this unit incase you would like to work on this project with students in another class.
