This unique design for a flap books can be differentiated in so many ways!
All you need to make this expanding book is one piece of 12 x 18 colored paper.
-Cut in half lengthwise to make two 18 X 6 pieces
-Fold into thirds
Now to differentiate:
Differentiate By Amount of Writing
Choose from any of the 30+ differentiated writing templates. See the preview for a picture of them in more detail.
Glue the writing templates to any section of the folded color paper. One tri-folded paper will hold 5 templates.
For more challenge, glue the SECOND long piece of colored paper VERTICALLY behind the first one, as shown in the pictures, to make a T-shaped expanding booklet that folds up and down.
Now you have 4 more spots to glue writing pages!
Differentiate By Complexity of Writing Task
Choose the writing templates that are appropriate for your students.
There are some that only require simple drawing and labeling.
Others require deeper thinking and more in-depth writing tasks.
There are also generic pages for you to create a writing topic.
Creating the Cover Animal
Included is a cute animal craft to glue on the very front of the booklet.
Just copy and color or assemble!
Reference Material for Animal Research
There is a fact sheet included for you to print and laminate for reference. It could be used individually or projected for students to refer to.
The facts are numbered and written in simple sentences.
To make it more challenging, use other reference books or internet searches to find more information.
There are several templates to use for alternate reference materials.
