As part of the school’s enrichment program, Sylvan Avenue Elementary School fourth-grade students recently completed a multi-week animal research project on a variety of animals.

Using the OPAC online resource, the students chose an animal to study and recorded their progress using an informational workbook. They were required to explain the reason for selecting the chosen animal and record the sources used during their research, as well as various facts about the creature. Each student learned about the animal’s physical characteristics, habitat, life span and diet before creating dioramas depicting their research.
