We’ve put together five-day lesson plans for each one of these books in our What if you had Animal Series: Engaging Readers Bundle.

What if you were a Zoo Animal?

Every year I taught kindergarten, we went to the zoo on a field trip. This was great because we always did a science unit about animals. I’ve added a little freebie at the end of this post for you to snag to tie in a study of zoo animals with these fun lesson plans.  With the resources from our unit and the freebie, your students can make a fun book to display their learning.
