Do your students love learning about things in the world around them? Use this mini unit to support your teaching on birds. I suggest finding books about flamingos, eagles, chickens, toucans, hummingbirds and bats (to compare to birds) to read to your class during the course of this mini unit.
This mini unit about birds includes the following:
Suggestions on how to use each page.
2 KWL charts (one in color, one in black and white)
A set of graphic organizers including flamingos, eagles, hummingbirds, chickens and toucans. A blank template is also included if you want to add additional birds. Two choices of covers if you choose to bind your student work into a book.
A life cycle of a bird graphic organizer.
A "label me" page for eagles.
A "Most Birds Can/Have/Are" graphic organizer.
A non-fiction paragraph about baby birds (written by me) with comprehension questions for your students to answer.
A Venn Diagram to compare bats with chickens.
"If I Were A Bird" story prompt.
A 7 page "All About Birds" student book that your students can illustrate based on the bird facts on each page.
**This mini unit is perfect for end of the year kindergarten classes as well as first and second grades.
