This pack includes 174 pages of 12 animals from the desert with differentiated (low, medium, and high) research as well as differentiated research on the desert habitat (high and med/low).
I also have rainforest (already uploadeD), ocean (already uploaded), and arctic tundra habitats/animals too! Arctic will be uploaded by March 16th.
There are also differentiated research writing templates, blank page numbers so you can choose what pages you want your students to complete, an array of graphic organizers, and places for students to incorporate the non-fiction text features like photograph, caption, diagram of habit and animal, glossary, table of contents, bold words, and graph.
This also integrates K, 1st, and 2nd grade objectives: landforms, lifecycles, and comparing animals/movement. It allows for paragraph formation, chapter book organization, and simple fact sentences with language frames. Along with a few sheets of narrative writing.
The animals included are:
Jackrabbit, scorpion, pocket mouse, gila monster, elf owl, coyote, camel, gopher, rattlesnake, tortoise, kit fox (fennec fox), and javelina.
The graphic organizers included are:
Circle map for animal/habitat, can/have/are chart, KWL, Lifecycle, lifespan/Diet/habitat/interesting fact bubble map, 3-2-1 3 interesting facts, 2 things I learned, 1 question, venn diagrams for animal/habitat, can/have/is chart, and a question page.
