Product Description
Are you a bit lost when preparing your science lesson to cover this NGSS standard? Want to offer your students a creative activity that has them engaged while also letting you assess their learning? Use this to supplement your unit or as an assessment. After reading the provided book: Adaptations Help Animals Survive, your students will get to create a writing display or lapbook to reveal and share information that they have learned about animals and the adaptations that help them survive.

This resource contains everything needed for the lesson.
* 5 animal cards with each animal's name, photo, and drawing
* The book: Adaptations Help Animals Survive
* A writing activity
* Teacher Tip pages

Do your 2nd grade students need to learn the importance of animal adaptations in their science lessons? I bet they also need more exposure to nonfiction text features for ELA as well. Check both of those skills or learning standards off your list of things to teach with these science activities.

Nonfiction text features are included in the included book about five animals and their adaptations. Look up unknown words in the glossary at the back of the book or use as a reference during the writing tasks. Labels are also included in the book as a nonfiction text feature. After reading, your students will write about an animal’s adaptations, do a little drawing, and extend their knowledge by identifying similarities between additional animals with the craft lapbook. Tie the arts in and make the knowledge learned more meaningful.

The animals in this book aren't your ordinary animals that your students may already have prior knowledge about. Have them expand their knowledge as they learn more about these animals:
crab
raccoon
skunk
tiger
warthog

The Book Contains:
a glossary
illustrations that are labeled
Question to Think About
Animals to Know list
Text to Self CONNECTION drawing page
5 animal pages with text and an illustration to color

You also get 5 Photo/Name/Drawing Pages - one for each animal in the book. Students will benefit from seeing real photographs of the animals to help them build their knowledge and aid in their coloring of the illustrations in the book and for their writing craft project.

The Writing Activity:
There are 3 pages to copy for your students to complete by writing, illustrating, labeling, and decorating bubble letters. The pages are easy enough for your primary students to create with only straight line cutting involved. Or you can prep the pages with the paper cutter lickety split.

Also Included in your download are 3 pages of Teacher Tips, To Do Checklist, and Prep Outline.
