Students will love learning all about owls including Barn Owls and Snowy Owls with this creative and interactive pack!
Owls are amazing birds! Did you know that owls are one of the oldest species in existence? Fossils of owls have been found dating back over 60 million years ago. People in countries from all over the world have always had a fascination with owls. Many cultures have made up stories or myths about owls for thousands of years.
In this activity pack, students will learn all about Barn Owls, Snowy Owls, Life Cycle of an Owl, body parts, and how owls help humans.
This unit includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for students including:
✔Mini-booklet all about owls
✔Life cycle of a barn owl
✔A Life Cycle Chart
✔Color the Owls with True Facts
✔Create an Owl Mini-booklet
✔Spotlight on Vocabulary
✔Owl Writing Project

Students will meet two owl characters:
✔Meet Hoot (a barn owl)
✔Meet Snowy (a snowy owl)
There are three main activities in this pack:
Introduce the eight vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too!
Next, have students read the informational articles all about owls, the life cycle of an owl, body parts, and more. Read the character studies where they will Meet Hoot, a barn owl and Meet Snowy, a snowy owl. The informational articles are written in the form of a mini-booklet with questions and scenes for students to connect, color, and assemble. Pages can be stapled at the top to make a full-sized booklet or be cut in half to create a half-page mini-book. See product pictures for ideas.
Have students complete the Barn Owl Mini-booklet, organizer, and writing activity to complete their study on owls. These make excellent activities to do independently at centers. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the Mini-booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the Mini-booklet. Mini-booklets can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. Students could then decorate the cover of the booklet. Hoot! Hoot!
