The teacher posted last week question whether parents can help their children at home with the animal report, but it will still be a class project. I followed his instructions and did it with my daughter about lions. He did not tell her anything (whether it was good or no good), but showed it to other parents that they will do too.
Yesterday I had to pick my daughter early and she told she was working on her animal report in class, but it was chimpanzee, she told that the article she read had had no information about physical characteristics and some more. And she also did not have pictures for her report (since I sent lion pics)...
We found great national geographic article for children about chimpanzees and my daughter does not mind to read more, but I really feel she is doing double job, that no one else did two reports...
So, what would you do?
1. send another highlighted article and pics of chimpanzee
2. ask what if any my daughter needs for her report
3. Anything else?

It sounds like your daughter may have changed her mind on what animal she wants to do a report on. I would just send in the article and pics of the chimpanzees. It can't hurt to learn about more than one animal.

I would send the teacher a quick email confirming that she is supposed to be working on a report for chimpanzee and then go from there.
