We’ve been busy in January researching and writing about Arctic animals in 2B. To tie in our learning about Arctic Canada in Social Studies and our research skills in Language Arts, each student chose an Arctic animal to research and report on. We learned about avoiding plagiarism and putting facts in our own words, and also about how to make sure that we had evidence for all of the facts in our reports that we had found in reliable sources. Students looked for information in the categories of habitat, diet, adaptations, and interesting facts. They also learned how to craft an introduction that would hook their readers and a conclusion that would provide a satisfying wrap up to the report. You can read the students’ reports below!
