Great lesson! The department I work in (R/LA) was able to adapt the idea using "What Would You Do With A Tail LIke This?" which is an exemplar text for K/1 in the Common Core State Standards. The back of the book has a separate section in the back of the book perfect for the students to ask genuine questions about an animal they found interesting the read/research more about it to find the answer to their question. If the answer was not found in the section in the back of the book then the students researched it on the internet.

Great lesson plan. I love the way you have made it really workable for primary grade students. I especially liked the class book.
