Animal Research!

Mrs. Ranney's class is finishing up a reading unit called

Animal Habitats.

We read Nights of the Pufflings. It was about some children in Iceland who rescue pufflings.

Another story called, Seal Surfer, was about a boy and his grandfather who befriend a mother seal and her pup.

Our final story, Two Days in May, is about an urban community that must solve a wildlife problem.

Use the Online World Book Encyclopedia
to research information about animals.

You may also use one of the animal links on Mrs. Ranney's Website
to find your animal facts.
