Learning Objective

Students will learn about rabbits and the adaptations they have to help them survive. Students will also learn about the life cycle of rabbits.

Description

Rabbit Life Cycle and Adaptations: Students will learn all about rabbits and how they are adapted to survive in their habitat. Students will love these high-interest reading passages on rabbits, life cycle and adaptations. Both behavioral and structural adaptations will be discussed. Great for a spring reading activity!

Let your students see the growth of baby rabbits over the course of two weeks! I had the unique opportunity to take a photo of the baby rabbits each day and show their growth and development. That is how this resource began!

This resource includes:

  • Over ten pages of informational text
  • Text-dependent comprehension pages
  • Interactive Notebook Inserts
  • A true-false quiz
  • Answer keys

This is a huge resource with over 60 pages!

Students will be motivated to read and learn about animal adaptations and growth and development and will love the close-up photos of baby bunnies during their first two weeks of life. The article is both informative and of high interest for the students and will increase science literacy.

For more information on a rabbit's life see this post.

Perfect for teaching about life cycles and animal adaptions. Did you know that rabbits' ears help them to stay cool in hot weather? Students will love learning about all the special structures that rabbits have that help them to survive.
