Product Description

Use this pet study to teach science standards. Introduce the importance of inherited traits and external body parts of animals with this emergent reader science book and writing activity. Prepare your students to tackle the 1st grade Next Generation Science Standard, Structure and Function, as you build upon their knowledge of pets, specifically birds. All organisms have inherited external parts. Yet they might be used in different ways. The nonfiction emergent reader text will help students grow their vocabulary of a bird's external body parts. Students can color the drawings and label one body part on each page of the book. A full page and half page photo is provided to support discussion and can be used for display. Two writing pages are included. One is open ended for your own writing topic. Both pages come in two versions: handwriting guide lines and plain lines.

Grab Structure and Function of Pets resource as well and build a unit about pets. This resource also focuses on pets and their body parts. The pair complement each other to develop students' knowledge of pets and their parts/traits.

This resource contains everything needed for the lesson.

* bird animal card with name, photo, and a drawing

* Vocabulary charts:

  1. traits/external parts: beak, wing, feathers, feet, and tail
  2. pet bird needs: cage, food, water

* The book: A Pet

  • predictable text
  • contains a reflection page for students to share if they would like or would not like to have a pet bird
  • drawings that students can color
  • room to write the body part and draw an arrow to label the bird drawings

* Writing page "I like" (a handwriting lines version and a plain line version) Students will pick one pet they like to write about. They will use the body part as a detail.

* Open ended writing page (a handwriting lines version and a plain line version)

* Teacher Tip pages with prep, sequence of activities, and build vocabulary suggestions.

Do your students need to learn about external body parts of animals for their science lessons? I bet they also need more practice with writing. Check these skills or learning standards off your list of things to do with these science activities.

Need more resources for science? Check out this resource which is a book about inventions inspired by animal traits.
