Kindergarten Science Unit on Animals.
Schubert, Nancy A.
Seven activities designed to teach kindergarten students about animals are offered in this unit. Instructions for each activity include a behavioral objective, materials needed, step-by-step procedures, and an evaluation suggestion. Topics of the activities are: (1) characteristics that distinguish animals from other living organisms (including the fact that people are one type of animal); (2) the fact that all animals are born from an egg; (3) five things that most animals need in order to grow; (4) types of shelters that animals live in; (5) kinds of animals that live in the sea or on the seashore; (6) characteristics of insects; and (7) characteristics of spiders. A cautionary note about poisonous spiders and a 19-item bibliography of books on animals conclude the unit. (DC)
