PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is compatible with the 3rd Grade Common Core ELA standards W.3.4, W.3.6, W.3.7, SL.3.6, L.3.1a, L.3.1b, L.3.1c, L.3.1d, L.3.1e, L.3.1f, L.3.1g, L.3.1h, L.3.1i, L.3.3a, L.3.3b, W.3.2a, W.3.2b, W.3.2c, W.3.2d. It is also compatible with the 3rd Grade Next Generation Science Standard* 3-LS4-3, which states that the student will “[c]onstruct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.”

This lesson has it all! Explore the science of vampire bats and their cave habitats while completing a language arts/technology lesson. The student will be able to act as a science writer in this lesson by doing research and reporting on it in a blog entitled, “14 Things You Didn’t Know About Vampire Bats.” In doing this research, students will cover grammar topics such as nouns, pronouns, verbs and verb tenses, comparative and superlative adjectives, adverbs, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions and more!

This lesson also includes a hands-on project where students will create their own inexpensive vampire bat cave habitat out of a cardboard box. The lesson includes vampire bat cut-outs as well as tropical plant cut outs to paste on the inside and outside of the cave.
