IMG_8730After break, my 4th graders started some work on deadly animals!  I started out by reading Fangs by Heather Dakota and read about deadly animals and how they use their fangs.  It’s a long book, so I picked out the pages that included the animals that would be in the student book.  We talked about how animals use their fangs and make them deadly.

The 4th graders then read Deadliest Animals by Melissa Stewart.  As they read, they had to take notes about how each animal was deadly in their own way.  When they were finished they needed to select one animal from the book and write about what made it deadly and other information about that animal.  They had to put it in a “Wanted” type poster.
