Camouflage and Mimicry Notebook Pages
Camouflage is a way animals blend into their environment so they can’t be seen. Color can help them hide or disguise themselves. Spots, stripes or other patterns can also break up the outline of its body to help the animal blend into its environment.

You will find a list of some of our Science Units here at the Science Units Page. Our packets include notebook pages, worksheets, and lots of hands-on activity ideas (with photos and instructions to show you what we did to make science engaging!!)
Our packets are for homeschool families with kids of multiple ages (because I have three kids, each two years apart). By the way, this Free Science Checklist share a checklist science topics I hoped to cover by the time the kids reached the end of 8th grade.
Here are links to some of our Science BUNDLES:
Biology BUNDLE, for late elementary & middle school
We (I have 3 kids, each 2 years apart) started covering biology topics such as the organelles of the cell and basic botany (parts of a seed/flower, carnivorous plants) in elementary. We would usually do one or two biology units each year. We would come back to that topic every couple of years and go into more depth. Each time we covered a unit, I added in new materials to our packets, so our units are great for homeschooling families with kids of different ages. We even used of this material for biology in high school.
Big Animal BUNDLE, for early elementary
My kids loved studying animals. We did a lot of activities over the years (and I kept adding to the packets I created. For example, the Animal Packet covers basic animal classification, animal characteristics, body coverings: feathers, fur, scales or skin, vertebrate groups, invertebrate groups, domesticated vs. wild animals, animals and their tracks, nocturnal vs diurnal animals, animal homes and shelters and more!
The Big Animal BUNDLE includes 11 packets. 1) Animal Unit, 2) World Animals Packet, 3) Rainforest Packet, 4) Life Cycles Packet, 5) Winter Packet – plus several mini units 6) the Cicadas Packet and 7) the Chameleon Packet. 8) the Wolves Mini-Unit 9) Australia Unit 10) Dinosaur Unit 11) Mittens Unit (These packets are also sold separately!)
This chemistry page will tell you more about each of these units. Again, we covered a chemistry topic most every year, reviewing many of these topics every couple of years (and/or going into more depth each time). We did most of these units in upper elementary and middle school (though I think my youngest was in early elementary when we did the states of matter unit).
Each year we would study a new human body system. Some of the units we covered included the skeletal system, muscular system, digestive system, circulatory system, nervous system, endocrine system and more! I have three kids, each two years apart. We would do our units together so we often did a lot of hands-on activities (for my youngest). We did these units again a few years later and would go into more depth as my kids got older (and then I would update and add to the packet). For that reason, our human body system materials is great for homeschooling families and can be used with a range of ages.
Our Spelling BUNDLE currently consists of 8 pdfs. Pictures are provided below! 1. Long A & Long I Packet; 2. Long E Packet; 3. ou/ow oy/oi au/aw Packet; 4. /er/ Sound Packet; 5. /k/ Sound Packet; 6. /ul/ Sound Packet; 7. ie/ei Words Packet; 8. Plurals – add -s or -es These packets are also sold separately. See this spelling page for more details.
Below is a set of word sort activities and games to reinforce the “ow” and “ou” vowel team; the “oy” and “oi” patterns; and the “au” and “aw” vowel patterns. I made this for ED as she finished up volume 2 of All About Spelling (affiliate link), the spelling program I’ve used with all 3 kids. She wanted some fun games again to go over these various vowel teams. 🙂 I loved that she would beg to play just “one more round”!
