Animal Study

Academy Elementary School third-graders in Janis Thomson’s class completed an in-depth research project as a culmination of their study on animals. As part of the project, the students selected an animal and collected information on that species through both written and Internet sources. Each project focused on the animal’s habitat, physical characteristics, diet, lifestyle and interesting facts. The students compiled their research to create dioramas depicting the animal in its natural habitat. The class shared their research project with younger peers in a museum set up in the classroom.
