PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Mammals
Mammals ELA and SCIENCE

This unit covers ELA and Science standards. Students will collect data about mammals and then make educated opinions about what reptile they like the most. I chose to concentrate on three mammals: Tigers, Gorillas, and Elephants. I completed this unit with my kindergarteners, however I feel like this unit is more geared towards 1st-3rd

Fact sheets are included in this unit. However, the teacher may want to provide some additional resources for this project.

Unit Includes:
Mammal Facts
Bubble Maps: Tigers, Gorillas, and Elephants
Can Have Are Charts for Tigers, Gorillas, and Elephants
KWL charts for Tigers, Gorillas, and Elephants
Writing Pages
5 paragraph essay example and worksheets
