Animal Research Project

This is a concluding product for our science unit on animals, adaptations, and habitats. Students were able to choose their animals and had ample opportunity to research their animal in the library as well as on line. They were to write a report, organize a bibliography, create a visual representation of their animal and present their findings to the class. They had a great time learning about animals, and the visuals they created (ranging from posters to dioramas) were wonderful!
