Animals of North America

Report
Dear Parents and Visitors,
Welcome to our presentation! During science we
investigated animals, their unique characteristics,
habitats, and life cycles. At the conclusion of this
unit, we used our science knowledge to write animal
riddles. Our project had many steps: science research,
writing, editing, typing, selecting photographs,
recording our reading, and completing the power point.
We wish you good luck in guessing the answers to our
riddles. Enjoy!
