Animals and their habitats Unit for kindergarten
Animal Unit -Kindergarten
Teaching Animals is so much fun, having taught younger grades for many years, it has always been a favourite unit of mine,
I love planning my themed units around picture books and in this unit I have chosen some classic favorites.
Kindergarten students have a deep interest in animals and the world around them
This resource booklet is a time saver for all primary teachers.
Within the book are links and activities which will keep a kindergarten class busy for a week or more. There are links to units of work, videos, interactive games, fantastic apps and printable activities.
Based on the theme of Animals, children will enjoy "Brown Bear, Brown Bear' by Eric Carle and 'One is a Snail, Ten is a Crab.' by April Pulley Sayre.
