Animal Groups

Animal Groups, Science, Theme

After a quick study of Habitats, we study six animal groups:  Birds, Fish, Insects, Mammals, Amphibians, and Reptiles.  As usual, our unit studies center on rich informational texts with a sprinkling of fiction texts as well.  Check out the pictures below, as well as the downloads available that help support us during this unit study.

Above:  The SMARTboard file keeps us on track with mentor texts, online resources, and video links.  These resources guide us on our journey of discovery.

Students work independently to create a personal Animal Groups poster, featuring an animal of their choice to represent each of the groups studied.  We then work to create a wall mural for other classes to enjoy.  Each student illustrates an animal for the wall chart.
