Animal Explorations: Research Paper

Animal Explorations: Research Paper


Nothing is more fascinating than the world around us. Students will have the fascinating opportunity to research an animal of their choice in depth. Equipped with unquenchible curiosity, students explore every aspect of the animal. Where is it from? Where does it live? Is it dangerous? Is it cute? Can I have one, Mom? Students learn how to use multiple sources, making notes and connecting information. Through engaging infographics, they share their information in a new media, expanding their audience. What will your student discover?
