Animal Characteristics

We have been learning about animals and their characteristics. A blogging friend shared this idea with me, so we tried it out in our classroom.

We watched an interactive power point on animals and their characteristics. We learned about animal body parts and animal coverings. Then we played odd man out. Students took turns looking at 3 animal cards in the pocket chart. Then they chose which animal was not like the others and pulled it out and explained why.

After the game, we chose animals and labeled their body parts. Then we shared them with each other.
