Animal Research Projects

Every year, we go to the river, and we see new animals each time.  With my second grader-to-be interested in animals and writing about them, I decided it was time we learned about the animals we were looking at.  There is very little information out there in the form a young child can digest (even the library let us down), so I took info from Wikipedia.com and put it into a less intimidating format.  I also made worksheets with questions they have to answer about the animals they are researching.IMG_4387c

The seven year olds loved these!  We found these are even more fun to do collaboratively!
