Fun with Writing!

Our class has had so much fun this week working on our Non-Fiction Mini-Books! Each student selected an animal to research and learn more about. We have used all types of resources such as non-fiction books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, the Internet, and our prior knowledge to research our animal. The students created a "Research Folder" to keep all of their research and writing pieces together. Our Mini-Books include a title, author, front / back cover, table of contents, and three chapters all about our animal. We are finishing up the final copies of our chapters and then our Mini-Books will be on display in our hallway!

Lily is working on her research about a Seahorse.
Jose and Daniel are working on their Table of Contents.
Tiona is showing off her Research Folder!
Next week, we will continue our unit on Informational Writing and create another non-fiction book about a Georgia Hero!
