These Factballs are a great addition to any unit studying African Animals, Animal Habitats or Animal Feature Comparisons. Use as a comprehension task, a whole group activity, as an assessment item or a Fast Finisher activity. I've used them in the past as a note-taking activity but really the ways these Factballs could be included in your classroom activities is endless!
Each Factball explores the Habitat, Features, Diet, Classification, Breeding, Threats and Predators, Conservation Status, Size and Weight of each animal and the answers to each of these sections is found in the comprehension sheets provided in this resource. These fact sheets are jam packed with interesting information that children will find fascinating and engaging yet are easy to read and comprehend. Please note: additional assistance with comprehension may be required for some students depending on their reading and comprehension level.
For extra effect I LOVE printing these pages onto A3 paper (sometimes coloured) and once completed hang them from the string lines in my classroom. They look amazing and are a great way to demonstrate learning to parents!
Included in this resource:
- A Factball template for each African Animal (12 included: Aardvark, Crocodile, Elephant, Gazelle, Giraffe, Hippopotamus, Hyena, Lion, Meerkat, Ostrich, Rhinoceros, Zebra)
- Information Pages for each African Animal, enabling students to complete the details on their Factball without the use of technology
