We are starting animal research reports this week and the kids are so stinkin' excited! We decided this year to partner kids up based on their interests and since I have such a low class this year, I thought this would work out really well!
Anyway, last week, they met with their partner and brainstormed some things they already knew about their animals and then wrote down questions they had.
Starting tomorrow and all of next week, we will be doing our actual research! We ask that students gather information based on these four main areas: Interesting Facts, Life Cycle, Habitat, and Adpatations and Defenses. These four areas align perfectly with our SC science standards so it's always a five paragraph research paper when we are all done!
Here is the note sheet we are using next week! Feel free to download! Just click on the image!
Happy MLK Day everyone!
I certainly enjoyed my day off! Got to have lunch and then a pedicure with a friend!
