I created a set of fill-in-the-blank books for students to use as we learned about each type of animals. They completed one book per day, and we also had a snack each day. Food makes all learning better, right?
Day 1 was mammals. Since it was the week before Easter, we made little bunnies out of sugar cookies, frosting, pull & peel licorice and M & Ms.

Day 2 was about reptiles. I was struggling to come up with a snack, so we had gummy worms and pretended they were gummy snakes.

Day 3 covered amphibians. We made little frogs using pretzel flats, Oreos and M&Ms.
We finished up the week learning about birds. I made little bird nests using chow mien noodles, marshmallow fluff, peanut butter and M&ms. My kiddos filled their nests with eggs (jelly beans) and a bird to keep the eggs warm (Peep).
Today is our first day back from Spring Break and the start of our new unit about water. I decided to start this unit off with a fish book. Our snack will be Swedish Fish (with eggs) from the Easter aisle.
These books are a new pack in my TpT store. They are bundled into one pack and are currently on sale for $4, but will be regular price ($5) on Friday. Check them out here.
