My students need frequent practice writing informational paragraphs throughout the school year and they love reading and writing about animals. We do one of these each month. They get better over the course of the school year. Students can also do additional research using the Internet or books. Many of the animals included in this pack are related to specific months, like turkeys in November or penguins in January. I give students the rubric and have them evaluate themselves. These paragraphs are helping them become better writers! Students can use the writing papers provided, or they can use notebook paper. We often have the kids type their report and add a picture!
Includes the following animals (organized from August to July):
Painted Lady Butterfly
Great White Sharks
