Product Description
Learning about Mountain Animals couldn't be more fun! This pack has it all including habitat information, vocabulary activities, research organizers, and even a scoring rubric.

This activity pack includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade students including:
*Informational article about the Mountain Regions
*Mountain Region Organizer
*Vocabulary Posters
*Vocabulary Flip Flaps
*Project Directions
*Mountain Animals Research Organizer
*Research Checklist

There are 3 main activities:

Mountain Animals Vocabulary:
Introduce the 6 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 about the habitat in the mountain regions and complete the Mountain Animals Organizer to build interest and background knowledge.

Mountain Animals Research Poster Project:
The Task: Students will research a specific type of mountain animals using books from the library and the Internet. Next, students will design a mural that includes the following information below. Label the following on the mural in the order listed below so that you color in the background and habitat last on your mural. Creativity, neatness, accuracy, and spelling counts!

Step One: Have students research the assigned type of mountain animal using textbooks, books from the library, and/or using the internet to complete the Mountain Animals Research Organizers.

Step Two: Students complete the poster or mural using the checklist and research organizers as a guide.

Step Three: Partner students up to compare and contrast their Mountain Animals to complete the Venn diagrams. Plus they’ll learn about another mountain animal, too!

Step Four: Have students present their animal to the class.
I usually use the big white rolls of paper and have the students sit out in the hall or go to the library/media center so they can spread out. I have had great success with this project as students love researching and learning about different types of mountain animals.

I've had students do it independently or with a partner or small groups. Included is a rubric for student expectations and grading purposes.

*For Elementary Grades - Second grade, Third grade, Fourth grade
*Common Core Aligned
