I am linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Science book linky.
For the past weeks, my class and I have been learning about different animal groups. A few years back, I ordered through Scholastic, some great Science Vocabulary Readers, to introduce animal groups to my kinderkids. I read one of these before delving into a particular animal group. My kinderkids wrote one fact and drew 2 examples in their Animal Groups book.
|These are kept at the science center so students can use them for sorting activities or for reading.|
|Here is an example of the bird page.|
|Here is an example of a fish page.|
|Here are some animal pictures found in magazines |
that were cut and laminated for the science center.
|Here are the directions at the science center.|
In small groups, we used an AIMS activity to sort animals by what group they belong to. It was not that exact lesson, but something similiar, as I have older versions of AIMS. I love using AIMS activities for math & science.
