Migration project

Friday, each child took home a packet that explained a research project.  Every child chose a migratory animal.  These projects are to be worked on at home.  At the end of the migration unit, each child will present what they have learned to all the other 1st and 2nd graders at school.

This is a 3 part project to include:

A brief written report (perhaps one paragraph, or just written in Q and A form) that should answer the following:

-animal's name
-why the animal migrates
-timing of migration

(Additional information about these topics are found on the handout.)

A map should also be included, which shows the route the animal takes.

Finally, your child should thing of a creative way to present the information to the class  (clay models, posters, dioramas, etc.)

Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to hearing and seeing these projects, and I hope your child enjoys the process, and learns even more about migration.
