Product Description

This research packet is geared toward students in grades 1-3 and includes project templates for fish, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and birds, as well as a title page and your choice of interlined or lined pages to make a folded booklet for each animal. BONUS DOWNLOAD: Vertebrate Classification WebQuest with animal classification poster and three-page WebQuest activity.

Students can make five vertebrate animal research projects using these materials.

This packet includes research project templates for each of the following animal groups: 
• Fish
• Reptiles
• Amphibians
• Mammals 
• Birds

Students will record the following information about a vertebrate animal of their choice:
• Classification
• Diet
• Size
• Weight
• Interesting Facts

In addition to the five one-page research templates, this product also includes:
• Visual Instructions for assembling the project
• Project Title Page
• Your choice of 2 Interlined Pages or Two Lined Pages to make a folded booklet 

I typically assign the same animal group to each of my students to complete individually and then I use the remaining templates for "Work on Writing", "Fast Finishers", or as a "Center Activity". 


BONUS DOWNLOAD: Vertebrate Classification WebQuest with instructions, poster, and 3-page webquest activity

This Vertebrate Classification WebQuest uses the mnemonic device F.R.A.M.B to recall the animals with an internal skeleton made of bone. Students will compete a WebQuest activity to classify the F.R.A.M.B. animals according to their characteristics. The F.R.A.M.B animals are: fish, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and birds.

Classroom tested and aligned with the BC (British Columbia) Science IRP for grade 2.
