Children will find this book a lot of fun to write! After researching information about animal life, students will then formulate the questions that they would ask animals in an interview. They can then pretend to interview animals about the foods they eat, the ways they move and hide, and the challenges they face to survive. This book teaches interviewing techniques and how to ask questions using the words why, when, where, what, who, and how. Children will be inspired to write creatively and use their imaginations in new ways.
