1 Research

Share this website with students.  I used Canvas to provide a link.  Google classroom or Hapara would also work to give students easy access.  Students then chose an animal to learn about.

Student Instructions

Follow your teachers instructions to get to the National Geographic website.  Choose an animal and read!

2 Organize Your Information

Print and copy the organizer for your students.  Students then use the National Geographic Animals site to fill in the information.

Student Instructions

Fill in the organizer given by your teacher.  Use the National Geographic Animal site to find the information.  

3 Making the Animal Cube

Share this website with students.  I used Canvas to provide a link.  Google classroom or Hapara would also work to give students easy access. Students should click "Get Started" and then choose the "Create Your Own Cube" link.  They then type the information from their organizers into the site.  Print when finished, color (optional), and assemble.  

Student Instructions

Type your information into the "Create Your Own Cube" creator.  When finished, print, color, and assemble.
