This unit can be used with literature books and informational texts about Animal Homes. The book Animal Homes by Angela Wilkes would be perfect to use for some of the activities in this unit.
Included are many whole group lessons and ideas, student writing activities and literacy activities to help increase rigor! It is aligned with the Common Core Standards.
I have also created a packet of Mathematics Centers called "Homes for Animals Mathematics Centers" that coordinates with this unit.
Included in this packet:
Picture cards of animals and their homes
Student Story Map about animal homes
Student writing pages with and without prompts
Tree Map with student copy
Circle Map - what animals need to build their homes
