Students will have a chance to watch a few videos (a YouTube playlist is provided).
Students will be completing notes during the videos. The focus on animal behavior is about reproduction so please preview videos before using.

There are 4 videos and one graphic notes style worksheet for each video.

I have also included informational texts to work on for the remainder of class. They could be assigned as small group work or individuals, you know your classes best.
There are 6 informational texts in total. I have included a student research sheet for the texts.
