Mrs. Burnett's 5th grade class collaborated with the teacher-librarian to investigate interesting vertebrates and document specific facts related to their animal's classification. Students migrated their findings into a Glogster Infographic that combined imagery and research into a compelling and informative visual.

Students accessed information sources via the Animal and Endangered Species Pathfinder. Mrs. Burnett created a Google Doc graphic organizer/note taking template for students to use to record their facts as well as capture Creative Commons licensed imagery. Students then migrated the most interesting facts and findings about their animal into a Glogster infographic.
