Australian Animals

by year 3

Year 3 enjoyed their unit on Australia so much we decided to keep exploring.

So we all chose an Australian vertebrate to study.

We looked at books and online encyclopedias like World Book Online and websites like Wikipedia.

We followed the 6 steps in our research - defining, locating, selecting, organizing, presenting and assessing. We learned about indexes, keywords, topic sentences and conclusions.

We are now publishing a book for our classroom.
