Animal Unit – Feather, Fur, Scales or Skin Pages Added!

Animal Unit - feathers fur scales skin vertebrates invertebrates insects spiders - worksheetsAs many of you know, we have a 50+ page animal packet that is about the different types of animals (vertebrates, invertebrates), animal characteristics, insects vs. spiders, domesticated vs. wild animals, animal tracks and much more!  I wanted to let you all know that I have added in about a dozen new pages!!

Note: For those of you who purchased this unit already, you should have received an email from SendOwl (the delivery service I use) with your download link. If you didn’t receive that or have any trouble with your download remember you can always contact me!

I added in new notebook pages and sorting cards about animal body coverings: feathers, fur, scales and skin. That includes a couple of notebook pages about why animal’s body coverings are so different.  Younger students can use the tracing pages provided.  There is also a set of sorting cards and a sorting mat as well as a practice worksheet for the different types of body coverings.

Feathers Fur Scales or Skin Worksheets and Sorting CardsI also added in some fun pages about Animal Tongues. (Those are on pages 63 to 75.)  If you’re scratching your head about that… my kids — especially my girls, really love learning about animals.  I thought it would be fun to talk about tongues as we start off our digestive system unit this coming semester!

There is a page where they have to identify “Whose Tongue?”  And, there are some notebook pages that talk about the many functions of animal tongues… from eating and drinking, to smelling and cooling themselves down. Again, there is a tracing page for those of you who are using this unit with younger kids.

Animal -TonguesFor those of you who want to know more about what is included in the Animal Packet, read on below:

If your kids are a bit older (upper elementary, middle school) the Scientific Classification and Taxonomy Unit might be a better fit.

As I said above, if your kids are a bit older (upper elementary, middle school) the Scientific Classification and Taxonomy Unit might be a better fit.  We did this Animal Unit several years ago and just this year we did an entire unit on scientific classification & taxonomy. We build dichotomous keys and went into quite a bit of depth about the animal phyla:
