So, it's better to show up late to a party than not at all right??
Collaboration Cuties to share about a great book I found recently. Make sure to check out the other link-ups at their blog too if you haven't already. There are some AWESOME ones!
I am going to share with you about a book called White Owl, Barn Owl.
We talked about how the author, Nicola Davies, must have learned about owls first before writing her story. Even though it's fiction, the way she describes the owl are spot on! I had the students listen as I read JUST the story (not the captions) and list anything they heard that told facts about owls:
I decided last year that animal adaptations was TOO much fun to wait until the spring to teach. I am going to teach it all throughout the year using Language Arts activities, then do "just" the science part in the Spring. I created a unit about owls using Gail Gibbons's book, as well as Nicola Davies's book. There is only one activity that must be used SPECIFICALLY with White Owl, Barn Owl (which is pictured above)... all of the other activities could really be done with any non-fiction book about owls.
