Study of Animal Tracks

In addition to activities I have assigned to students in past years for our animal tracks study, this year I added a compare/contrast component.  See February 1, 2014 post for more information about other activities related to this unit.

For the compare/contrast activity partners chose 2 animal tracks they had researched. They drew them and then wrote captions explaining a similarity and a difference. Strip Design and My Story were the most commonly chosen apps for this activity, although 1 pair created a Popplet.

Pairs then shared their work with another set of students for proofreading and critical friend purposes (always a good thing as the sample here shows that the illustrations were mislabeled on 1 page).
