After writing my last post, I started poking around the Internet for resources that I could use for developing lessons around the unit theme “Animals.”
National Geographic Kids is a fantastic resource to incorporate into animal-themed literacy centers, computer time, science units and more! The number of free animal videos on the site makes this a resource worth adding to your favorites list!
I like the National Geographic Cartoon Factory–a game where children are given various cartoons with empty thought bubbles. After typing their own dialogues into the bubbles, students can print out their cartoons to take home and put on the fridge! -Anna
