This packet is a great addition to your Jungle unit! Your students explore the rain forest, the savannah, and river 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. 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! When children illustrate their own book, they take an active role in their learning adventure. They retain the knowledge longer because they become an active participant in their education! A blank lined sheet is included to aid in your differentiated instruction. Students can use the lined sheet to write their own words instead of the ones included in the book. Animals included are giraffe, crocodile, gorilla, pygmy hippo, zebra, lion, and elephant.
