Product Description
Learning about Tundra Animals couldn't be more fun! This pack has it all including habitat information, vocabulary activities, research organizers, and even a scoring rubric.

This research project includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade students including:
✔Informational article about the Tundra
✔Tundra Organizer
✔Vocabulary Posters
✔Vocabulary Flip Flaps
✔Project Directions
✔Research Organizer
✔Research Checklist
✔Grading Rubric

There are 3 main activities:
Introduce the 6 vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Next, have students read the informational articles about the tundra habitat and complete the Tundra Animals Organizer to build interest and background knowledge.

Tundra Animals Research Poster Project:
The Task: Students will research a specific type of Tundra Animals using books from the library and the Internet. Next, students will design a mural that includes the following information below. Label the following on the mural in the order listed below so that you color in the background and habitat last on your mural. Creativity, neatness, accuracy, and spelling counts!

Step One: Have students research the assigned type of animal species that lives on the tundra using textbooks, books from the library, and/or using the internet to complete the Tundra Animals Research Organizers.

Step Two: Students complete the poster or mural using the checklist and research organizers as a guide.

Step Three: Partner students up to compare and contrast their Tundra Animals to complete the Venn diagrams. Plus they’ll learn about another tundra animal, too!

Step Four: Have students present their animal to the class.
I usually use the big white rolls of paper and have the students sit out in the hall or go to the library/media center so they can spread out. I have had great success with this project as students love researching and learning about different types of animals that live on the tundra.

I've had students do it independently or with a partner or small groups. Included is a rubric for student expectations and grading purposes.

✔For Upper Elementary Grades - Second grade, Third grade, Fourth grade
✔Common Core Aligned
