What started as a Comprehension Printable Packet has turned out to be so much more!
Included in this Zoo Animal Activity Packet is a set of full-page printables with a reading passage at around the Second Grade Level. However, it can lend well to Firsties that can read well, and Third Graders in need of something at their level should it be lower. Each printable features an animal and has interesting facts about it in the passage. Then there is an accompanying comprehension activity page with 3-4 questions and a word search that features key words from the text. The questions are Right-There and Inferring Questions, perfect to ready them for standardized testing. There are a total of 10 animal passages and 10 activity pages.
The remainder of the Zoo Animal Activity Packet is a set of animal trading cards with the cutest animal clip art around (thanks Krista Wallden!). There are a total of 26 animal trading cards included, with 4 to a page, in color. Next there is an animal covering center, that features real photos the kids will just love. They have to guess the animals from the coverings in the photos. Their are 15 photo cards that are half-page sized. There are answer cards that the students can use as a matching center should you wish, and recording sheets available for accountability.
Next, you will find a Handprint Zoo Craftivity with examples, that is the cutest! Perfect for an animal bulletin board. Finally there is an animal coloring book that your students will love, with 26 animals featured. There are examples of what good coloring should look like, and a cover to staple them together.
I know you'll enjoy this pack, for just the comprehension printables alone, but with all the other goodies to supplement your Zoo Animal Unit of Study, you'll be golden! Please take a look at the preview to see all the pages you'll receive with this product.
