Product Description
This thematic unit focuses on seven different animals' winter behaviors. Some are hibernators, some are not, some migrate, and some go into a state of torpor. Begin with some unit specific vocabulary and full color animal fact posters, then move through the reading passages with text dependent questions. The passages also appear as fluency passages that are great for homework or partner reading. Also included are a crossword puzzle, Venn diagrams, writing prompts, a crossword puzzle, task cards and an assessment.
