  • Aim to include an image of your animal, and include a caption in each piece of work.
  • Animals to research:
    • Macaw
    • Anaconda
    • Spider Monkey
    • Jaguar
    • Leaf cutter Ant
    • Capybara
    • Tarantula


Research questions:

  • What kind of animal is it?
  • Describe its appearance
  • Where does it live?
  • What does it eat? How does it catch/get its food?
  • Include an interesting fact or 2!
