This information is also found in your child's cubby. Please check!
The first and second graders in my class and Elaine's class have all chosen animals to research as a homework project. These projects will be presented to each other as an end-of-unit event. On the packet located in your child's cubby, you will see the animal your child has chosen.
This is a 3 part project to include:
A brief written report (perhaps one paragraph, or just written in Q and A form) that should answer the following:
* animal's name
* why the animal migrates
* type of migration
Additional information about these topics are found on the written assignment.
A map should also be included, which shows the route the animal takes.
Finally, a creative aspect (clay models, posters, dioramas, etc.)
Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to hearing and seeing these projects, and I hope your child enjoys the process, and learns even more about migration.
