Matthew chose to report on porcupines.
He did some reading . . .

and assembled a model with his sister Emily’s assistance.

After many hours of research and work  . . . Ta da! A bristly beauty!

Matthew’s porcupine was ingeniously assembled with:
1. Styrofoam balls for the head and body
2. A large pine cone tail
3. Pipe cleaners for the hairs
4. Skewers for the body quills
5. Toothpicks for the face quills
6. A big button for the nose
7. Paper towel rolls for the legs
8. Styrofoam for the paws
9. A googly eye

Version 2
Matthew also built a terrific tri-fold with photos, facts, and an author biography!
