We are in the midst of studying animals with the 7 year old. Last week, I shared how we were learning about animal habitats with Nancy Larson Science.  This week, we are continuing our study by discussing what animals, in general, eat and how they survive in the wild.

Out of all the animals we have been studying, my son seems to be the most interested in seals right now. We decided to take this opportunity to work on his research and writing skills. He searched our library’s animal section and found some books about seals. We read them together and talked about interesting seal facts.

The next step was to organize information into a report form. Since this is his first report, I created this animal report printable for him to fill out.

This animal report printable is a great tool for younger learners. They can use it to know what kind of questions they should be answering in an animal report. It will help them dig deeper in their research. Depending on the age, you can have the child answer in complete sentences or just a few lines. Older students can use this form as a start to a larger report or use many of these to record basic information about a larger number of animals. However you use it, I hope you find it as helpful as we did.

Great minds must think alike. After I created this printable and planned to share it with you, I saw that Ticia over at Adventures In Mommydom created an Animal Report Printable for her kids, too. Go check her’s out. It’s a free download, also!

    I love this Marci! This would be a great way to include my five year old with the animal study that my 4th and 6th graders are doing through their Trail Guide to Learning curriculum. This would be a great addition to our “What’s Working Wednesday” link-up at NextGen Homeschool, would you like to add it?
