Animals in Winter Research

The students did research in the Library with Mrs. Thornton. Each group learned about a different winter animal and recorded information on a tree map. Then they used the tree map to write sentences about their animal. To bring their projects all together the students created crayon resist illustrations of their animal. For our first research project I think they did a pretty good job. We will be doing more research projects on rainforest animals, zoo animals and farm animals before the end of the year.
