"Wild About Animals Mini Research Packet"

I absolutely love watching kindergarteners grow as writers throughout the year!  It amazes me how much they change as writers from the first day of school to the end of the year.  For one of their Writing Centers this month, my little cowpokes have been sharing what they know about different animals.  They began their research papers by using adjectives to describe their creature.  Teaching little people about using descriptive words is often challenging and interesting!  Not sure they quite got it, but they had fun trying!! 

After they completed their "I can describe..." maps, they move on to share what their creature "has" "can do" and "what they are".  

And finally, they moved on to their informational piece about their creatures!  Aren't ya'll amazed what all they came up with and how well they were able to share information about their creature!?  

I've created a little freebie in case you'd like to do a little farm animal research with you little peeps!  You can click on the images below to go to the freebie!!  This little freebie is a from my larger packet "Wild About Animals".  Enjoy!!
