Animal research can be done in so many ways. I always inspire my students with a project like the ones in this booklet and more. Give them an opportunity to visually show you and others what they learned. Then follow up with an opportunity to share and present to a partner/ small or large group.
Visual embellishments are helpful for presentations and outstanding bulletin board displays. Kids wrote their extended factual paragraph as part of their research and spread out writing across sequential numbered, pre-cut squares. Kids illustrated topic and glued to pop-up stand in center. If time permits, allow them to add more background if desired. Be creative!
