These fun animals know how to play as they slide, somersault, flip, and flop! You can learn all about them with our Otter Lapbook.
How to Complete Research for the Otter Lapbook
By the time your student is finished with this animal lapbook, he will be an expert on otters.
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 pages will guide him through the process and teach him the meanings of new words.
For example, as your student is completing the Communication Book, he will read through this information on the page: Animals communicate using signals, displays, and sounds. This information helps other animals to make decisions that affect their survival. How does this animal communicate? Write your answer inside the book.
