This is a close-up. This is the finished product of an assignment I did with first graders. They researched a winter animal using pebble go. They filled out a graphic organizer and then typed those words onto a word document. They then copied those words into Tagxedo.com. Tagxedo.com makes a word cloud into almost any shape.
Animal Adaptations Chart: Give the students the animals (could use in older grades and have the students choose the animal) and work as a class to discuss the adaptations that these animals need to be able to use that adaptation to survive.
