* This report can be printed in TWO formats ... lined and unlined. In one format the graphic organizers are left blank, and in the other format the graphic organizers have appropriately spaced lines. Simply choose your preference!
* Would you like to wrap up your shared research with a final writing piece? There are butterfly themed writing papers in both a primary lined format and a single line format.
* Although the shared research project works best when completed together, some of you may require an assessment or grading piece. To meet that need, there is an EDITABLE, in Microsoft Word, rubric.
* There is also a bibliography of nonfiction titles, kid-friendly websites, and videos that relate to all different aspects of butterflies. Each of the resources is clickable. Simply open your PDF file, click on the pix, and you'll be at a book description, a website, or a video!
Use this project in its entirety or pull out pages that most fit your needs. Be sure to check out the downloadable preview for a complete view of all twelve pages.
Happy Researching :)
