What is This Animal Research Project?

Students will research information about different animals that all live in the same habitats and record findings. Students will then edit their notes and compile them into a book on a certain animal habitat that they researched. Students can pick between many different animal habitats, and can do their research online on for free at National Geographic Kids or can use books that you check out from the library.
