Product Description


Students (Gr K,1,2) read or listen to text and view rich, authentic media (photos and video clips) as they learn about the 6 animal groups. Covered: defining characteristics of each group plus an animal profile. The high-interest rainforest theme is used to present NGSS-aligned life science content.

This unit pack contains 71 pages. The page count includes pages found at links contained within the unit for assessments and activities. The unit includes lessons with media, assessments, answer key, a hands-on activity, and a grade 1 NGSS Scope and Sequence document. It was written for 1st grade students but is also appropriate for students in grades K and 2. 

This unit typically takes about 12 sessions to teach. The number of sessions depends on depth of study and the amount of time devoted to class discussion.  This recommendation is based on an estimate of 30 minutes per lesson for grades K-2 and 40 minutes for grades 3-5. The content and media have been designed to encourage class discussion.


EPUB files are the same format used for reading ebooks. They are easy to use and the readers can be downloaded for free. EPUBs have more interactivity options and allow for more rich media use than PDFs or PPTs. Free ePub3 readers include Calibre, Adobe Digital Editions, Azardi, OverDrive, Kobo, FB Reader (Windows), and iBooks (Mac).  


The format allows for teacher-led lessons on a digital display as well as small group or individual use on computers. Students can use independently on iPads or computers for enrichment, reinforcement, or at science centers. Content is engaging and helps meet nonfiction literacy requirements.
