Bats Activity Pack

There are 4 main activities:
Introduce the unit with the 3 fun and factual character bats: Buddy Boo, Berry Boo, and Bitty Boo. Have students write three facts they learned about their favorite bat on writing paper choices that match the bats. These look great as a display on a bulletin board.

Next, read the “An Uninvited Guest” story and answer the questions to pique their interest and build background knowledge. These are perfect for guided reading groups with two sets of skill-based questions. This is also a great discussion starter for real life situations involving bats.

Introduce the 6 vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. In addition, the vocabulary flip flaps are a great hands-on activity that works well in their interactive notebooks.

Next, have students read the 4 informational articles and complete the Batty for Bats Organizer (2-sided). These are great for centers or group work.

The final project is a Batty for Bats Accordion Book. There are three options to do this depending on age and time limits. They will color, cut, and build the book. Once completed it can be used as a stand alone mini booklet or be glued inside their notebooks.
