Mariposa Elementary kindergartners study and report on animals

Students in Greta Hyatt’s kindergarten class at Mariposa Elementary created an animal report using tree maps.  Tree maps direct students on creating reports by providing research strategies at a primary level.  The students were directed to find information about their animals by answering the following questions: What does your animal look like?  Where does your animal live?  What does your animal eat? After finishing their assignment, each student had an opportunity to share their new animal facts with the class.
