Animal Sounds Teacher Resources
Oink! Meow! Cock-a-doodle-doo! Just because we can’t understand animals doesn’t mean they’re not communicating! From “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” to the phonological studies of zoologists and veterinarians, there are all kinds of ways to interpret animal sounds—and to bring them into the classroom.
The littlest learners will love watching Elmo talk about animal sounds in a cute Sesame Street video. Preschoolers and kindergartners can explore animal sounds with a pretend trip to the zoo, or match the animal to its sound with an independent study worksheet. They can also use an adorable app to identify animal sounds on personal tablets or devices.
Older learners can practice animal-themed onomatopoeia in a language arts activity that focuses on poetic elements, and use an interactive lesson to discover the messages animals are communicating with their roars, hisses, or clucks.
