A combination of science and language arts that will have your students coming out from their long winter's nap in a hurry! Animals investigated include Bears, Ladybugs, Groundhogs, Garter Snakes, Turtles, and Bats. Every day a different animal helps to keep students motivated to learn. Lesson plans give suggested teaching strategies for each of the lessons and each day there is a brainstorming activity, a study of new vocabulary, a spelling activity, work in the activity book, a writing activity and a homework page. A reproducible booklet contains vocabulary activities, a fact sheet, related questions and writing activities. This Animal Science lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, lessons, activities, crossword, word search, and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
