This is a great note taking lesson to teach about reptiles. Research question boxes are: Basic Facts, Habitat, Food, Life Cycle, and Fun Facts.
Animal note taking sheets include:
A blank note taking page for customization
A general reptile note taking sheet is also provided. This can be used as a sample activity to introduce your students to research and the characteristics of reptiles.
Students can be assigned different animals to research or each animal can be studied in a whole group setting if preferred.
Students should use PebbleGo, online encyclopedias, ebooks or regular books to find the answers to the research boxes. A source box is also included for students to indicate the type and title of the source used.
