PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

When my third grade students learned about animal populations they understood that a population of animals is the number of individuals of a particular same kind of species that live in an area. But then they discovered that within a population of animals, the male, female, babies, and the group itself had different names. Thus, to learn these different names within a population led to a creative color coded class activity in poetry verse form called Colorful Animal Poems.

The name of the animal was written in purple, the male’s name was written in blue, the female’s name was written in red, the young animal was written in orange, and the group name was written in green in each poem.

The book was shared by all the families in my class. Then as each child took the finished book home to share with their families, they would write comments in the back of the book then return it the next school day. Eventually the book remained at school in our classroom library.

Included in this activity are:
• Directions to make this cross curricular activity
• Images of the class book we compiled
• Introduction to the book for the reader
• Sample of the reader comment page
• Informational organizer (for student use)
• Recipe to follow when writing verse (for student use)
• Rubric
• Color coded listing of many different animal populations organized by group name, male, female, and young to use as suggestions.
• You could make the hard bound version of the class book or digitize it to share online with the whole class, other classes, or families.
