My self-contained 4th grade class (low-mid English level) is doing a research project on our favorite animals.  By research I mean that I pre-select the website, then bookmark the encyclopedia article, and check the corresponding book out from the library.  But they are learning how to use a variety of sources and how to synthesize information into their report.  However, the graphic organizer below is what I must deal with on a daily basis from one student.  Sadly, I can read it without much difficulty.  Any guesses to his country of origin (or alphabet)?

Also, be sure to watch out.  Lions prey on humans.  I better double check that book...

And, in case you were wondering, here is the finished copy!

Also, please note that the "loin" lives in the grassland. I wonder where the paws and tail reside.
