21 lessons help students investigate non-fiction online. You will find three formats for every bird, cat, dog, duck, ferret, fish, frog, gecko, gerbil, guinea pig, hamster, horse, lizard, pig, praying mantis, rabbit, rat, scorpion, snake, tarantula, and turtle.
Students visit websites to learn more about: the food that the pet eats (plant or meat); whether it has hair, scales, feathers, or a hard exoskeleton; where it lives (in a bowl, cage, or back yard); the dangers it faces and how it protects itself; where it came from in the wild; its life-cycle, characteristics at birth, and how long it lives; how it helps or harms other life on the planet; and why we choose to keep this animal as a pet.
