SCARY ANIMALS - Year 1 & 2 research project

Our search plan is

  • What do they look like?
  • What do they eat?
  • Where do they live?
  • What do they attack or defend with?

We chose these animals because we thought they were scary.
We are using books and the internet to find information about them.
