Second Grade Dinosaur Report Information Sheet
Your child is bringing home a folder for his/her report. (Each child has a different dinosaur; names were drawn at random.) We will try to find a book at school that he/she can bring home. However, we have a limited number of books at school, so if you can go to the public library or find information on the internet, that would be helpful! The folder of information needs to be returned to school with the report on March 9th.
You can help by reading the dinosaur information with your child (most of it will be difficult for your child to read alone) and talking about it. Then help your child decide what is most important and interesting to him/her and write it in his/her own words. There should be a rough draft, editing, and a final copy.
It isn't necessary to write every single fact, or cover every topic on the instruction sheet. (I expect 1 1/2 to 2 pages - 1 page equals the front and back side of a piece of paper - in order to include all the necessary facts, and more is fine if your child is excited about the information. The important thing is for your child to have a positive experience in gathering and reporting information about an interesting topic.
In addition to the written report, your child needs to draw a picture of the dinosaur and its surroundings and make a model of his/her dinosaur using the Model Magic provided. All pictures and models must be kid made and drawn. Do not paint the Model Magic.
All Students will read their report to the class, and should practice reading it aloud at home!
Attached is a self-rating sheet for your child to use to evaluate his/her report. Please help your child answer the questions about their report.
All reports are due on Friday, March 9th. No parts may be turned in early.
Please help your child organize the following pieces of information to be turned in on Friday, March 9th.
- Final Draft
- Rough Draft
- Folder of dinosaur information
