Animal Nation

first grade

Animal Nation

Students will choose an animal of their choice, and use guiding questions to help them research and learn more about their animal.

* What does the animal need to survive?

*How does the animal meet those needs?

* What are the animal's strengths/weaknesses?

*What characteristics does the animal have that help it survive in its habitat?

* What are some interesting facts about the animal?


Students will create a "Who am I" game and book- Students will use note cards to record the answers to their guided questions. They will present these to the class and see if the class can guess what animal they've chosen. Then, they will take this information and create their own animal book using the information they've researched.
