The Amazing Animal Activity Book: Dozens of Hands-on Projects That Teach across the Curriculum. Grades 1-3.
The activities in this book are designed to encourage children's scientific curiosity as well as their creativity. Activities include puppet making, word scrambles, matching exercises, crossword and jigsaw puzzles, mobiles, games, mini books, coloring activities, Venn diagrams, and plays. These activities are intended as a foundation for children to learn about characteristics that define different animal groups. Animals are grouped by chapter into classes of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and birds. The final chapter brings all animals together under the animal kingdom heading to explore the many things animals from different classes have in common. Each section begins with supportive background information for teachers followed by student activities which include a materials list and instructions for the teacher, resource lists, a reference page for students, and reproducible activity sheets. Suggestions are included for integrating activities into the curriculum. (PVD)
