As part of our unit on the Ocean, our class will be completing a simple research project. Each student has been assigned an ocean animal that they will research. After they research their animal, they will create a model of the animal and give an oral presentation to the class.
Below you will find the Parent Letter that was sent home with your child. In addition, you will find the questions that the students have been asked to answer about their animal. Please check out the information below for assignment directions and helpful tips.
