Endangered Animal Project

This term we are looking at Report Writing as part of our Literacy Block.
We have had to choose an Australian Endangered Animal that we would like to research. We have a four part project that we have begun.

Part 1 involves us answering a range of questions based on the terms endangered, threatened and vulnerable.

Part 2 involved us writing a written report.

We are using the structure below to write our report.

ReportHere are the bones of what your written report should look like

Classification – introduce your animal (describe your animal: appearance, weight, size, where in the world is it found, etc.)

Description
Paragraph 1 – Describe your animals habitat.
Paragraph 2 – Describe what your animal needs to eat to survive – include the animal’s food chain
Paragraph 3 – Explain why your chosen animal is endangered
Paragraph 4 – Write about an organisations that are helping the animal. Include information about what we can do to help this animal survive.
You may like to include more paragraphs with additional information. 

Conclusion – Remember this is OPTIONAL

Part 3 involves us writing a persuasive text about whether or not we think our chosen animal should be saved from becoming extinct.

Part 4 involves us designing and creating a model replicating the habitat our chosen animal lives in the wild.
