Description

This is the perfect bundle of goodies to teacher your primary students about reptiles. It is over a weeks worth of materials that is sure to engage your little learners and make them reptile experts. There are two paper mini books that are Included. One is all about reptiles and their characteristics and the other is about comparing crocodiles to alligators. There are 4 research projects included for snakes, turtles, chameleons, and crocodiles. I use this packet to integrate reading as well as the research towards the end of our first grade year. There are also 4 crafts and lesson plans for you to look over on how you can use everything that is included. As a bonus I have added some fiction activities too for The Extraordinary Egg and A Color of His Own. I love to integrate fiction and non-fiction on the same topic.
