The Animals ABC Brainstorming Templates can be used as both an assessment tool and as part of instruction. Students draw or write their knowledge about animals on the brainstorming templates. As a teacher, you can review these templates to get an overview of what your students know about animals and what vocabulary they use.
There are three different templates provided in this package of materials. The first template contains a series of boxes in which students can draw pictures that start with each letter of the alphabet. The second template encourages students to print a word about animals for each letter. The third template provides room for students to write a series of words, phrases, or sentences related to each letter of the alphabet. Provide students with the template that matches their individual learning needs.
This activity can be completed individually, in small groups, or as a class. It is also a useful strategy to use as an anchor activity for students to complete when they have finished their regular class work.
