This packet can be used in conjunction with the Seymour Simon collection of Smithsonian books on frogs, penguins, dogs, cats and dolphins. This collection is a unit in the Fountas and Pinnell Interval Read Aloud curriculum. This packet can also be used when just teaching students about different animals. There are 3 pages of glossary terms that are important to understand when reading the Seymour Simon books. There are also pages where students can fill out information about each animal (where they live, eat, etc.) and pages where they can fill out information about each of their life cycles.
