Animal Research Writing

  3. Thanks so much for the research writing templates. I was making my own, decided to search for any interesting versions (usually for older grades, so then I'd have to adapt for K) and found these! Happy Monday!

  4. Trying this today! We are using Pebble Go (we have a subscription) in the Computer Lab to choose an insect or amphibian to research. This ties in with our tadpole and caterpillar life cycle unit nicely. Thanks Melissa!
