Animal Research Project

We have been learning about animals for the past few weeks and really showed off our learning with an animal research project.  Here is the finished product:





We attached a rubric to the back of our projects and colored in each of the things that living things needs when we added them to our projects.




To make the project, each student chose an animal based on a set of Pebble books I checked out from the library.  We used the books and the website, Pebble Go, to learn about our animals.


Pebble Go also helped us with research skills and allowed us to integrate technology into our learning.  They LOVED using it!

It is a VERY useful sight for kinders because it meant for emergent readers.  The site is written in kid friendly language and reads the information to students.  It also has videos of the animals and allows students to listen to the sounds the animal makes.

We also wrote books about our animals that included a table of contents and information we learned about our animals.  Of course we dedicated our books, too!  (They LOVE that dedication stamp!)






We used many organizers and such to creat these projects.  You can get them in my shop as a freebie.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

  2. I would love these as a freebie! This would fit right into our zoo unit! The kids already do research and this would be a great way to showcase the information!

    Thanks.

  10. What a great way to bring content and writing together! I would love to try this. Could you please post organizers. I am trying to use technology to share the work we do in class with at home. Have you ever tried podcasting for your students work? or little Bird tales?
