Animals in Winter – How about a new way to teach and learn about animals in winter? The interactive activities and printables included in this packet can be used with any nonfiction book about animals in winter. I included instructions for how to create each piece, as well as how to put everything together to make an interactive folder. I found it most helpful to put the pieces together and add them to the folder on at a time, after we learned about that part of the unit. This way the interactive folder became an ongoing record of what we had learned. In addition to the interactive folder, I included other printables that can be used throughout this unit.
Interactive Folder Activities:
- Notebook/Page Title
- “Animals in Winter” vocabulary definition flapbook (with preprinted definitions and blank lines)
- “Hibernate, Migrate and Adapt” flower flaps
- “Hibernators” Flaps (with preprinted information and blank lines)
- “The Great Migration” inter-locking flaps
- “Ways Animals Adapt” accordion book (with preprinted information and blank lines)
- Writing paper (2 choices)
- “Animals in Winter” pocket with animal card pictures and headings to sort
- Anchor charts
- “Winter Animal Wonderings” pre-reading organizer
- “How Do They Survive?” details sheet
- “Winter Animals WOW’s!” ideas summary sheet
- “Which Way of Surviving…?: opinion writing
- “Compare and Contrast” people and animals Venn diagram
