I have created easy to use worksheets for primary students to start researching! To start this unit off, you'll need the book Bear Snores On. I created response sheets to go along with the book as well as 4 different activities for Verb Tenses and a brief page explaining how I'll use the activities for the 5 days. Worksheets include: Cause & Effect, First, Next, Then and Last, Story Map.
The rest of the packet is designed to get kids researching animals that hibernate. There are Can-Have-Are maps for different animals that hibernate, as well as a "clearing up misconceptions" worksheet and a nice booklet for students to complete to write their findings about hibernation into.
And, I also included the Essential Question Posters to match the skills addressed in this packet.
They are aligned to the first grade CCSSs.
