Animal Research Project
This 155 page Animal Research Bundle contains all you need to teach students how to complete an individualized, self-directed research project ending in a Natural History Museum. Students will learn how to research using non-fiction books and put the information in their own words! No more copying directly from the book! The process is broken down into day-to-day lessons.

This Animal Research bundle is differentiated and a perfect way to meet the needs of all of your students.
