Want a way to have some cross-curricular teaching? This product is perfect for using literacy to teach science. And...it's fun!!
The "What if You Had..." book series by Sandra Markle is AMAZING for teaching and exploring animal adaptations. Not only are these books informative but they are also TONS of fun. Even though they may seem to only be appealing to younger grades, my 5th graders were super engaged and truly enjoy learning about all of these "weird" animal characteristics.
This product is simple and self-explanatory, but essentially the students will fill in the simple chart with examples of animal adaptations they find in the “What if you had animal…” books.
There are currently SIX of these books out by Sandra Markle:
What if you had Animal...
You can use this product in centers or have the students walk around and do a gallery walk. Depending on the time you have, you can have students do one page, or extend their time and have them do both sides. The possibilities are endless. Not only will they have fun,but they will alos have to think critically to complete this chart.
