FREEBIE! Lesson #1 in this science unit is a fun and interactive lesson for young elementary students about birds and how their physical features help them survive. This lesson plan walks you step-by-step through the entire lesson and provides you with a copy of the worksheet at the end. The book to be used with it is listed in the plan and is optional for this lesson. This lesson plan includes a pre-teaching reading component as well as a post-teaching literacy center activity idea.
This is part 1 of a full unit plan on Birds and Their Habitats, but can be used and adapted as needed to fit whatever unit you need it for. Enjoy!
