I guess I should tell you what book so you know what the heck I'm talking about (unless you clicked on that link up there)!
Arrowhawk is a book about a young red-tailed hawk that was shot in the leg/tail with a poacher's arrow and he survived! The story is written based on what the author learned about a hawk's behaviors because obviously, we don't know exactly what happened in his journey before they were able to rescue and rehabilitate him. I got to hear all about her research and writing process last summer at an author's visit! She even signed my book! :)
TPT unit for it! :)
a freebie from the unit, answer key included! The activity includes sentences from the book- the students have to identify the type of adaptations/skills found in the sentence. My students loved to prove themselves with this activity- they had to tell me WHY they chose that word because for some, there are a few options!
