Animal research projects are an engaging and motivating classroom activity!
Turning animal research projects into an animal wax museum makes it even more special for students, parents, and school members! It turns into an event that is cherished and looked forward to every year. It truly helps to build that strong classroom and school community.
Every year in second grade we complete Animal Research Projects.
Ever since I created my Animal Wax Museum Pack this is a breeze for my coworkers and I!
Our students researched, created dioramas, and made their costumes at home with their parents. In school they wrote their final copies, created their posters, buttons, and animal crossing signs.
Let’s take a look!
The great thing to remember is that this pack can easily be used for students in grades K-4. The expectations and support would be different for each grade level but the resources from the pack could be used for all of those grade levels! I have found some great examples on Instagram of friends using my pack! I love to see how other teachers use the resources in their rooms
These are Caitlin’s pictures from Kindergarten Smiles. She had her students work in groups!
These are pictures from two second grade classrooms! Excelling in Second used them for student-led conferences.
