Animal research project Young Learners 3
To wrap up the fall term, Young Learners 3 students did research projects on an animal of your choice. In the lessons of Brainpop ESL they had studied, they had learned about the characteristics of mammals and also about libraries. Thus they incorporated vocabulary and structures from the two units to do their own research.
Each student chose an animal, and together they decided what information they were going to look for. They practiced taking notes of the most relevant information using graphic organizers. They then converted their notes to paragraph format with the help of a writing frame. Writing frame animal page.
Each student had to write and illustrate at least one page of a book, which can now be seen in the Institute Library. And at the end, each person presented their information orally to the whole group. The students did not want to share the videos of their presentations on the blog, but they were able to watch them, to see what they did well and what they would try to improve next time.
Wonderful job, Young Learners 3! What do you want to investigate for the next project?
At the end of this entry you can see how the book turned out, which is now on display in the Library.
