Product Description
We're going to the zoo to learn all about zoos and zoo animals! Guide K-3 students through the writing process. Teach them to research facts, take notes, and write informational paragraphs. Have students create adorable craft projects to display their writing.

These activities are aligned with ELA Common Core Standards.

Literature and Non-Fiction Text Connections List of recommended fiction and non-fiction texts to use with this unit.

Word Bank + Center Response Sheet Display the word cards and pictures for student reference while writing and reading about zoo animals.

Vocabulary Cards Teach the students vocabulary related to the groups of animals they are learning about.

Animal Classifications Discuss the characteristics of each animal group with this color poster set.

Animal Research and Writing I’ve included resources to research and write about the following animals:

Big Cats: lions and tigers
Bears: polar bears and panda bears
Apes: gorillas and orangutans
Birds: flamingos and peacocks
Turtles and Tortoises

*Research Charts Teach your student how to take notes as they learn facts about zoo animals.
*Rough Draft Pages Once your students have taken notes, they can transform their animal facts into sentences and paragraphs using the rough draft pages. I’ve included three to choose from, depending upon your students’ needs.
*Editing Guides Guide your students through the process of editing and then revising their work.
*Neat Sheets Students write their final drafts on half sheets, to be displayed on animals craft projects.

Craft Projects Have students make craft projects to display written work.
