Nests, Nests, Nests! – a 25-page e-Book for zoology and nature study. Simple Science Strategies, $1.95
Earlier this month, we studied nests, comparing a squirrel’s nest to an oriole’s nest in “Comparing Nests: The ‘Same and Different’ Center.” For those of you who want to study nests in more depth, I am pleased to share my newest e-Book, Nests, Nests, Nests!
Nests, Nests, Nests! is a 25-page e-Book perfect for the elementary classroom or homeschool science class.
This set includes both primary and regular-ruled science journaling pages focusing on animal nests, as well as a variety of framed pages for thematic writing, note-taking or nature study. Organizers for studying and comparing nests of different animal orders, coloring and copywork pages, and game cards for sorting and classification tasks make this set versatile, perfect for direct instruction or independent learning tasks.
Set includes both primary- and regular-ruled pages.
Several different organizers lead students to compare nests of different animal orders, and to develop a deeper understanding of the purpose of an animal nest.
Vintage botanical and zoological illustrations provide high-quality visuals for students to study and color, and the pages include plenty of space for journaling, notebooking or note-taking tasks.
Plain lined pages provide space for more extended writing tasks, or writing paper for independent writing tasks.
The nests of 6 different animal orders are featured, to get students to think beyond birds’ nests in this study.
Three different organizers are provided: a double-bubble map, and a concept definition frame and a discussion frame.
The double-bubble can be used to compare two different nests, either from the illustrations, from text studies, or from a classroom collection of nests.
The concept definition frame can be used by the class to determine the essential qualities of any nest, and to develop an operational definition about what a nest really is.
The discussion frame is useful for cooperative learning tasks where students decide whether or not humans also create nests.
Two pages of sortable animal nest cards can be used for a variety of games or independent learning tasks.
Manuscript and cursive copywork pages include scriptures that fit the theme.
A two-page set of images can be used to create a sort activity, for small group or independent learning task use. Simply copy them onto cardstock or heavy paper.
Images includes nests from birds, mammals, fish, insects, reptiles, amphibians, and other animal orders.
All images are original or images that are in the public domain. All the remaining work is original work.
If you are a homeschooler, and are looking for a “one-stop” set of notebooking pages, you will appreciate the manuscript and cursive copywork, which draws upon Scriptures on theme.
Per customer requests, this zoology item also includes suggested lesson uses, linked resources and much more.
