All About Polar Animals

All second graders have begun learning about animals of the Arctic and Antarctica. In this unit, students are researching an animal of their choice and writing their own nonfiction text based on the animal. They will include many text features including headings, diagrams, labels and a table of contents. Students have been hard at work for more than a week now locating information in a variety of nonfiction sources.

Here is a sneak peek of some of their work so far:

In the upcoming weeks, students will finish these books and create a visual display of their animals. They will also create a life cycle collage using an iPad app! This has been a productive and highly engaging week of learning and we are looking forward to the rest of it!
