Updated 4/6/15: Revised edition now includes a black line version of the student report. This download provides a color copy and B&W copy.
This student report template is a great way to support primary children as they learn how to research information and write in expository or informative forms. This resource will complement a study of animals that live in the ocean and will provide a purpose and audience for your students to share their new knowledge.
During this research project, each of your students will select a sea animal to learn more about, draw diagrams with labels, tell about its habitat and diet, discover whether it is gentle or dangerous, and share amazing facts.
If done in class (as opposed to homework), this research could be structured individually or in cooperative pairings or small groups, allowing the children to learn with and from each other. Whether your children do this as a homework assignment or in class, plan for a sharing expo where the students can showcase what they learned.
