I remember the first time I saw the prairie. There were miles and miles of corn for as far as the eye could see. What I couldn’t see at that quick glance was the amazing world of plants and animals that the prairie supports. This FREE Prairie Animals Notebooking Unit gives students a chance to dive in and learn about 33 different kinds of animals that make their homes in prairies or steppes in various parts of the world.
Notebooking is a great tool to help your kids take ownership of what they are learning by creating a unique project of their own. They can research and record:
- what country or countries each animal is found in
- the type or types of climates you can find each animal in
- the animal’s physical description
- other interesting facts about the animal
You can have them find the countries on a map that each animal lives in to add some geography to your science unit!
They’ll learn about 33 different animals including:
- American kestrel
- Bactrian camel
- burrowing owl
- bush dog
- dung beetle
- golden eagle
- gray fox
- jack rabbit
- mourning dove
- prairie chicken
- prairie dog
