A simplified way to research many different types of spiders at the same time and compare the data on the chart. Or each student could research one spider, and then share their facts with other groups students in the class. This chart goes hand in hand with the spider fact sheets from this website: http://www.creepycrawlies.info/types-of-spiders.htm, which lists facts about close to one hundred different types of spiders. The chart could also be enlarged to 11x18 to create more space for the students to record their facts.
*Please see take a look at the Spider Research Project that goes with this chart @ http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Spiders-Spider-Research-Project-1450597
