Animal Research

This week we were able to publish our animal research projects.   The kids really enjoyed that!  I was thrilled to see how excited they continue to be, even though we have 5 days left!

I have to confess... These reflections were my favorite part.  The kids will read, learn, discover... but the power of reflecting about their work and learning, is far more important (in my opinion).  If I can have them reflect about their learning goals... the sky is the limit!  What do you guys think?

You can find the Animal Research project  HERE.


  1. The pictures are not far apart for me. Maybe it was just a glitch.

    Your research projects look adorable. It is definitely a great thing for kids to be able to reflect on their learning and the things they create.

  2. I like your research projects.
    I didn't notice a large gap intil you pointed it out. Sometimes all you need to do is hit the backspace button.
    I just found your blog. I like how easy it is to navigate.

  5. OOh I love these reports! Did you create the masters? I went to your TPT stoe and didn't see them there. I also teach second and I'm very new to teacher blogging. I'm excited to see more of your projects this year:)
