PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

THIS PRODUCT WAS REVISED IN MARCH 2014

This packet is a great addition to your Jungle unit! Your students explore the rain forest, the savannah, river, and deseret habitats. Beginning map skills are included as well as easy to follow directions for how to draw or cut from paper the animals that call these habitats home. A full color teacher read aloud uses realistic photos to describe each habitat and animal.

Designed to be a supplement to your thematic Jungle unit, this booklet is written in an easy reader format. Students illustrate the book themselves by using basic drawing skills. Step by step directions for how to create the animals are included. Realistic picture cards are included to aid in instruction. The pages can be put into a learning center for all students to complete, be a teacher directed activity, or used as enrichment for students who finish their assigned work early and need something fun and educational to do!

Animals included are giraffe, crocodile, gorilla, pygmy hippo, zebra, lion, and elephant. Simple fun facts about each animal are given as well as simple information about the continent of Africa.

I have included black lines of the animals if you rather not have your students draw or create the animals from paper. The black lines are NOT shown in the preview.

Students can use the animal word wall cards to write about each animal. Paper is added that can be used for a differentiated writing activity.

DOWNLOAD THE PREVIEW TO VIEW THE COMPONENTS INCLUDED. THE BLACK LINES OF THE ANIMALS ARE NOT SHOWN IN THE PREVIEW.

This was awesome! Used it with my class after studying Growth and Changes in Animals and before our end of year trip to the African Lion Safari. The students were soooo engaged. To beef up the academic part for grade 2, we added "fast facts" to each page about the animals. I will definitely used this activity again and again. Thanks so much!
On  August 17, 2013KinderKay answered:
Oh gosh, this is awesome that you adapted this resource to meet your needs! That is what teaching is about and what makes it so much fun for me to share!

Thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  March 31, 2012,  Martha Carol C. asked:
Are there instructions for just drawing or are the cut and paste directions in here also like some of your other units? Also, do you have one with spring type things: Butterfly, caterpillar, flowers, etc? I really like to use these and see how each one turns out differently.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 14, 2012KinderKay answered:
There are no written directions for this particular packet. There ARE, however, picture cues that show children the steps to drawing the animals. African Jungle Animals was one of my first products, so it is presented a little differently than my other products. (This product has been revised since I gave this response. Please see the comments on the product page!) I am presently working on a spring themed product, but it is not yet ready. I like to try them in my classroom first before posting to work out any problems! I do have a free product centering around flowers. Here is the link: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/My-Flower-Garden-Lets-Make-a-Book-Emergent-Reader It also, though, is one of my first products and therefore set up differently from my newer ones.
Thank you for your interest in my products! I am so glad that you enjoy them! I will be posting my new spring packet soon!
