PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This month-long bat thematic unit is for preschool to kindergarten-aged students and includes 41 pages of circle-time discussion cards and activities to go with them.

Begin 9 different circle-time discussions using circle-card discussion starters: what is a bat? bats are mammals, bats can fly, bats use echolocation, bats sleep upside-down, parts of a bat, types of bats, what bats eat and where bats live.

All 9 discussion cards have a lesson for that day. When teaching about what a bat is, the first part of the lesson, start with making a mammal book and defining a bat as a mammal.

Bats are the only mammals that can fly - have children make a bat mobile with a set of bat mobile parts in color or in black and white for children to decorate and color themselves.

Play a circle-time echolocation game with a helpful chart to add up the classroom echolocation IQ.

Learn 6 important parts of a bat with 3-part nomenclature matching cards - blank pages are included for children to make and color their own parts of a bat book.

Learn the names of 4 different types of bats with more 3-part matching cards.

Children can then assemble their own spinner and make their own playing chips or the teacher can assemble for shelf work in which children play a feed a bat dinner game and learn the name of 8 different types of bats and what food they eat. Make the material more manipulative by placing a small basket alongside it with plastic, playable bats and food items.

Finally, count and stamp bats into their common domiciles with a set of dittos with numbers ranging from 1 to 10.

A helpful booklist about bats is also included.
