I have some old Kids National Geographic Magazines in my classroom and my students covet the animal trading cards inside some of the issues. I decided to use their interest to create a mini-research form.
To download this free sheet of trading cards from my Google Drive, click here.
These can be adapted for any animal, real or imaginary. You can require a certain number glued to an index card with illustrations. I like having open ended projects like this for students who finish other work.
