Animal Log Assignment

Teaching Resource OVERVIEW

The purpose of the Animal Log Assignment is for students to become attuned to the wild and domesticated animals that live both with and around us—to become aware of their physical features, habitats, movements, behaviors, and perhaps even desires. Each Log allows students to closely observe just one animal during one moment, as well as to practice written composition skills.
