Animals and their habitats a complete unit of work for grade 1
Teaching Animals is such a fun and engaging unit.
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. Grade 1 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 Year 1 class busy for a week or more. Based around the theme of Animals, there are links to units of work, videos, interactive games, fantastic apps and printable activities. The featured picture book is 'Mrs Wishy Washy' by Joy Cowley, and ' One is a Snail, Ten is a Crab" by April Pulley Sayre.
