How to Complete Research for the Forest Lapbook

By the time your student is finished with this research project, he will be an expert on forest animals.

This lapbook was designed to give your student ample research opportunities. I recommend teaching your student how to find quality websites such as National Geographic or National Geographic Kids, or going to the library to get books for this project.

Your student will have to conduct simple research in order to create this lapbook. However, prompts on the first page help explain new terms to your student. It includes anatomy, diet, predator, defenses, and lifespan.
