DINOSAUR Non-Fiction Research:
This non-fiction unit has everything you need to begin researching and teaching about dinosaurs! Start researching dinosaurs together as a class and then let students choose their own dinosaur to research. There are many ways to differentiate your research to meet the individual needs of your students or the time you have to research. Choose a full-fledged research report, just a list of facts, or an information sheet.
