San Diego Zoo Writing Assignment

The San Diego Zoo is one of the largest zoos that we have in our country, located in Southern California. Use the link to go to the San Diego Zoo website. You will need to copy and paste into your browser. https://kids.sandiegozoo.org/animals This link will take you directly to the animals of the San Diego Zoo page. On this page, you will see all of the animals that have a home at the zoo and they are listed in alphabetical order. Your assignment: Choose any 3 animals on the website and write one paragraph about what you learned about EACH animal. Remember, a paragraph is at least 5 sentences. You should have 15 sentences total, 5 for each animal. Be sure to use capital letters and punctuation. You can tell us why you chose that animal and some of the things that the make the animal unique (where it lives, what it looks like, how big or small it is, etc.) You may type out your paragraphs in the Note tool. This should be a fun assignment for you! Be creative :)
