Students can fill out this packet of information as they complete a nonfiction research project on an animal. Categories include appearance, diet, habitat, behavior, lifespan, and other interesting information. There are questions under each category for students to fill out. I use this packet during my nonfiction reading & writing unit. Students use nonfiction books and the internet to find the information about their animal. After filling out the packet, students write a nonfiction book about their animal. For younger students, you could have them complete the packet in groups.
