Zoo Animal Freebie!

Is there anything children enjoy more than learning about animals? There are so many exciting things to wonder about... and so many confusions rolling around in their sweet little heads! Like the little sweetie of mine who was excited to be going to gym to do the octopus course (obstacle course), another who wondered how cows get their gutters, and yet another whose dad hauled around a truck filled with woodchucks (woodchips)! Honestly, does anyone in the world get as much fun and laughter in their workdays as we do?

At the end of the day, of course, we're here to help them untangle the facts from the what-they-are-convinced-are-facts-but-well, no.  Here's a freebie for you that will review some facts about zoo animals while providing practice with subject and predicate. There are 12 sentence subject cards, 12 predicate cards, a self-checking card, and a student response sheet, as well as a suggestion for an extension activity for writing.



This activity is from my zoo animal unit. It's a set of cross-curricular activities to practice early literacy skills while supporting your science teaching about zoo animals. Here's a sampling of the activities...





Download the preview at my TPT store for a detailed listing of the contents!



I'm hard at work on a new animal/literacy cross-curricular unit, Animal Groups. Keep watching here for details by the end of this week! (At least, that's the plan... :)
