It's their first research project and I must say, I'm impressed! They are loving it! I'm trying to decide if they should do the same thing with a new animal, or if I should squeeze in one more science unit before the year is over so they can do a different kind of non-fiction project.
This is the sea turtle book my kiddo used:
A Kindergartner: Sea Turtle Report
|Both sharks and racoons eat sea turtles. Crabs eat baby turtles.|
|It eats seaweed, crab, and jellyfish.|
|They lay eggs on land.|
First Grader: Octopus Report
This is one of the books he used. This series is amazing! They have them for all sorts of animals and it's written like a story book instead of a text book, so it's easy for kids to understand basic concepts about the animals.
