Research Books


Children often know more about exotic animals than those living in their own backyard! I wanted my Grade Two students to learn about the fauna in their own local environment.


We walk to and explore in the local forest once a week. My Grade Two students then each chose a local animal to research. Students have each become an “expert” on creatures such as American Toads, Peregrine Falcons, praying mantises, garter snakes, etc. Each child then wrote a book which was published professionally at the local Staples store. A copy of each child’s book is now being placed into the school’s Home Reading Program for other students to read!
