Beware, this instructional activity requires the assistance of a class pet! Observation and predictions are key components of the scientific mind; they are also the focus of a fun instructional activity. Little learners discuss their daily routine, then they turn their attention to the classroom pet. They make predictions about things they think the pet will do during its day. They observe the pet throughout the week, charting what it does during every hour of class time. At the end of the week they discuss their findings and determine how correct their predictions were. Tip: If you don't have a class pet you can use your own, or even borrow one from a nearby grower. Chickens, rabbits, and ducks can all be borrowed, you could also do this instructional activity in conjunction with a chick hatching project.
