I LOVE including some sort of reading into my TPT store and classroom. This is an activity you can use with students by allowing them to read the fictional story about a jungle trip. Once they are finished reading, they will be asked to reread in hopes to underline animal names. Students will then select 5 of the underlined animals and classify their groups.
*There are some easier ones in the story...so it would be great to use at the beginning of your animal group study.
