Writing our All About Books

At the end of last week, we began writing our All About books on our chosen animal. We are taking all of the facts that we gathered and synthesizing them into a book with sections about the animal. The sections are: What does the animal look like?, What does the animal eat?, Where does the animal live? and How does the animal protect itself? It will also include other nonfiction features like a table of contents and a fun facts page. Each writer may choose other nonfiction features to include if they would like. Below are a few sample pages from our books.
