This is a packet based around the GATE unit of "Thinking Like a Disciplinarian" designed for K-2 students and aligned with CCSS. Students step into the role of being a Zoologist and complete a research study on an animal based on the story "A Kangaroo Has a Mother Too" by Eric Carle, with the main focus being mother and baby animal relationships. Students can work independently, in small groups or partners depending on preference and ability. Once the research packet is complete, students will create a cereal box diorama to depict their research, and will present it to the class.
This packet includes:
What is a Zoologist? Display Card
Zoologist Definition Display Card
Zoologist Badges for lanyard (Color and BW)
Zoologist in Training Hat
