Animal Report Assignment
For your report, you will be researching, collecting information, and writing about an animal of your choice. Do not choose an animal for which you have already written a report in a previous grade, or an animal that is extinct. Please try to use a variety of sources for your report (books, magazines, the internet, encyclopedias), and be sure to record the titles of books, internet sites, or other sources that you use for your report. Your report must be in your own words.
