This Arctic animals research project is designed to make research and writing developmentally appropriate and engaging for students. This resource contains everything you need to create graphic organizers, class charts, student research journals, and centers to conduct an Arctic animals project in your classroom.
The research is conducted with read aloud and videos. Learning is recorded on graphic organizers and in student research journals. You can focus on one animal for the duration of the project or study multiple animals with this flexible resource!
INCLUDED IN THE ZIP FILE: THE ENTIRE ARCTIC ANIMAL CREATION WITH ALL 8 ANIMALS AND THE MATH AND LITERACY CENTERS IN ONE PDF FILE. ALSO INCLUDED ARE 7 INDIVIDUAL PDF FILES FOR EACH ANIMAL. THIS ALLOWS YOU TO EASILY CHOOSE THE ANIMAL YOU WANT TO RESEARCH AND ONLY NEED TO OPEN AND PRINT THAT PDF FILE!
These pages are designed to make whole class charts and then students can complete their individual pages.
The student pages can be done separately or made into an arctic animal research journal or you can do each animal separately. I will make mine into a book for students to complete as we learn about arctic animals.
These centers will bring some arctic animal fun into your math and literacy centers! These activities are common core aligned and can be differentiated. Each center includes a recording sheet for center accountability, independent practice or assessment.
