As part of our Informative writing unit, third graders will be researching and writing a report on an animal of their choice. As researchers, we will be using internet and book resources to collect information on a graphic organizer. Next, we will write our reports using text features such as a table of contents, headings, highlighting, maps, a glossary, and a bibliography. Finally, we will turn our reports into Keynote presentations that we will share with each other.
