Our class really enjoyed reading and discussing Annie and the Wild Animals
by Jan Brett. After much discussion, the students decided they would like to
make a riddle page about the different animals. They then realized it might
be a good idea to do some research to find out more about them. Working in
small groups, they used a variety of sources to learn more—animal books,
zoo magazines, posters, encyclopedias and the Internet. Each group completed a table of facts about their assigned animal.Topics chosen included the classification of animal (mammal),habitat, description, food and other.

From their table they composed clues for the riddles. Finally they
illustrated the animal and read the clues to the class, inviting everyone to
guess their animal. A few are a little tricky. We learned lots of surprising
facts! Enjoy!
