That is a whole lot of mammal magic right there! This unit could easily provide you with everything you need for an “Open House” or “Superintendent Walkthrough”. “Mammals of the Woods” is fun to teach, and based on my student’s reactions, it is fun to learn. That is a recipe for success! I do believe that just a spoonful of sugar helps the Common Core go down! This unit sweetens up those Common Core standards and makes your day fun!

May your heart and your grade book be full!

If you want to share this unit with another teacher or you are planning to split the cost of this unit that’s OK. TpT recommends providing a ½ price additional license so you can do this. I think ½ price is too much money. I am providing the additional license to you for $2. Just click the Additional License button above, and share the joy. Team teaching is the best!
