Endangered Animal Research

Split up the research so your class can learn about many endangered animals as they each research one and complete this two-page worksheet. Each student or small group chooses an animal and uses online research to find basic facts, habitat information, the current population, the animal's diet, why it is threatened, how it can be saved, and five interesting facts. They use the worksheet to complete a bibliography as well.
