In the 2nd grade library classes, we are currently doing a mini-research project on endangered marine animals. So far, we have been mostly using the database Pebble Go, which is available to anyone with a Minuteman Library card. This weekend, I also picked up an amazing book on endangered animals called "Animals Alive: The fight for survival in the wild." This book was published by DK (Dorling Kindersley), and has the same beautiful graphics that this publisher's other books have. Each animal is given a double-page spread, which includes a large color picture of the animal, various facts (population, size, diet, etc.) and the main threats to its survival. I look forward to introducing this book during class this week!
