Reading Adventure Pack: Animals

This Reading Adventure Pack: Animals activity & project also includes:

Scholars explore the animal kingdom with help from two texts, Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey and A Bed for the Winter by Karen Wallace. The literature and informational text set the learning stage for thoughtful discussion and hands-on activities. Pupils make a mask resembling their favorite wild animal, build a home for a toy or care for their babies, and observe animals at home, outside, or on a show.
