This packet contains 40 printable pages to help your students increase their wildlife vocabulary. Each page can stand alone for independent or partner work. Or, you can print four packets, each with 10 pages and a cover page for early finishers, Gifted students, or students who want to improve their grades. Each lesson centers on one wildlife photo and nine key vocabulary words. For example, page two has a photo of a Monarch butterfly and the vocabulary words: butterfly, adult, distasteful, migrate, beautiful, monarch, transform and swoosh. And it asks these questions: Which words could have an antonym? List three other beautiful things. List three parts of a butterfly. Which word is the longest? Which word is the shortest? Write the toughest word five times. Describe this wildlife photo in a sentence. Write a sentence using the word happiness. Write each word once.
