This writing project includes a variety of pre-writing research activities to guide your students in their penguin research. Included are a series of questions about the Life Cycle, The Habitat and the Appearance of the assigned (you choose) penguin species. In addition, there are blank graphic organizers for each topic for students to gather information that might not be included in the questions or to brainstorm quality vocabulary to use in the writing assignment. You will also find Pre-Writing Worksheets for rough draft development of paragraphs, as well as, an additional rough draft guide for putting together an entire essay if you want to differentiate the project. Two types of thematic lined paper are included for final drafts.
