Here's what other teachers have to say about the Animals Unit:

"This resource is amazing! My students loved the real pictures and learning more about the different animals. This supplemented our animal unit with songs, poems, games, and real information. Their favorite part was learning about each animal and going home to share their new information with their families. They were just so engaged through the entire unit!"

"I love PTLP circle time units!!! Especially this animal unit. It covers all the wonder animals that my children adore and gave us a real life look at them.
