A great way to utilize those free paint strips that you can find in hardware stores! Students must choose a random paint strip and then figure out which animals come in those colors.
There is a pre-writing sheet and a chart to use in order to generate a list of animals as well as to get students focused on the traits of animals of different colors.
There is also a booklet for students to complete using their paint strip colors, the research they do about the animals, and the ideas they come up with about the animals of those colors.
This is a great way to get students excited about writing and research! It is designed for intermediate students!
