This time of the year, many of us are planning a trip to the zoo or working on a zoo animal unit; what a great time to connect the experience with writing! This unit, Let's Write About the Zoo is a complete unit that you can use even if you're not visiting the zoo. It has all you need to have your kiddos writing animal reports in no time!
Included you'll find materials for 15 animals commonly found in zoos! These animals are: elephants, giraffes, monkeys, gorillas, frogs, lizards, polar bears, koalas, panda bears, lions, tigers, penguins, alligators, and peacocks.
For each animal there are many resources available for your students. There is:
~a full-page color poster
~a comprehension passage with a color picture and an identical passage with a black and white passage for students to highlight/underline!
~4 thinking maps/note taking pages to help them organize their reports
~a writing page for their final draft
There are a total of 131 pages in this mega-writing unit! Please see the preview for a look at all pages included.
