You can do this research as a whole class reading a book and presenting facts or partners for some and you pull a group of students who may need assistance. You can also complete this one on one as an intervention with an aid while others complete it in a way that works for them. This activity can be differentiated as needed. For Example, I am using this with Kindergarten and just having them display the Can, Have, Are sheets with their chosen animals.
