After reading Stellaluna, and Zipping, Zapping, Zooming Bats, we created a Fact and Opinion anchor chart about Bats. (We also made a venn diagram of fiction and non-fiction text.)
Then, I had the students write down 11 of the many facts we learned about bats.
Then they formed an opinion of bats and chose 2 facts that supported their opinion. After, they wrote a paragraph on a bat template. Lastly, we colored and labeled the parts of a bat.
Here you get the Fact and Opinion Sheets and Writing template.
I used Bats are a Flying (a freebie on tpt) for part of my unit.
I also used Bats Day and Night from Reading A-Z for part of my unit.
In addition I used Bats-Poetry Packet (a tpt freebie).
I used labeling bat activity from kidzone.ws
