Download a complete Animal Report Graphic Organizer for your students, print off and teach. Complete with rubric and all! Students learn in this lesson about using gathered research to write a report. They will organize their information in simple paragraphs and construct a 5 paragraph essay.
I did this lesson with my students and they loved. They were nervous to create a report at first but were calmed with this scaffolded graphic organizer.
This lesson is also available in my Adaptation and Environments unit which has 5 complete STEM lessons.
