I introduced Animal reports this week. The students each have an animal picked out for their report. Most of the work will be done in class but I may need some help gathering information for the students to do their research from. I have some books here and encyclopedias but if you can do a google search and either send me an article or print one for your child to bring to class that would be helpful. I generally type in “_____ facts for kids” this usually brings up facts kids can easily read and work from. The public library would also be a good source for books on animals

The three main categories they are looking for are: appearance, diet, and habitat.

Please let me know if you have any questions! Happy researching!!

I introduced country reports yesterday in class. Each student picked a country for their report. I have some information and encyclopedias in the classroom however you may want to do a google search with your child to find information on their country. I generally type in: “______ facts for kids” and it generally give easy to read information for kids. They can pick 3 main categories to research. Examples include: food, origin of country, culture, government, animals, sports, landscape, and landmarks.

Most of the work will be done in class but if they don’t make benchmarks I will suggest they take it home and work so they don’t get behind. The next 2 weeks will be researching.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
