Here's a matchbook foldable research project from 2nd grade ESL (low intermediate) at J.H.Gunn Elementary School.
This project is based on the Reading A-Z book, Extreme Animals.
The backing for this project is an animal shape. The matchbook foldable is the body or the face (see other animals below).

For this project, students chose an animal and used a website to find facts about the animal. The following website is kid-friendly and has lots of facts about animals and many other things, too: Science Kids...
Students wrote comparisons about their animal using a note-taking organizer to record the information they found while researching the website.
They used their notes to write three comparison sentences inside the matchbook foldable.

NOTE: The outside of the matchbook foldable is the face or tummy area of the animal. I glued a piece of plain white paper inside the matchbook foldable for students to write on.
