The students then put their information into a paragraph, each paragraph covering one topic. We practiced this quite a bit together as a class. We also discussed proper paragraph format, using an opening and closing sentence.
As students were researching, I noticed that they find quite a bit of information that didn’t quite fit into their 3 topics. The students wanted to include these interesting facts, but weren’t sure where to put them. So we created a “Fun Facts” page!
The students also created diagrams of their animal, labeling its parts.
