Reading:
Introduce the unit with the 3 fun and factual bats: Buddy Boo, Berry Boo, and Bitty Boo. Next, read the “An Uninvited Guest” story and answer the questions to pique their interest and build background knowledge. These are perfect for guided reading groups with two sets of skill-based questions. This is also a great discussion starter for real life situations. There’s also a writing prompt for students to write their own “Uninvited Guest” story. Bonus: A cause and effect activity, author’s purpose, a Venn to compare and contrast bats and you.

Have students read the informational articles and complete the Batty for Bats Scavenger Hunt Organizers (3). These are great for centers too.

You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. In addition, the vocabulary flip flaps are a great hands-on activity that works well in their interactive notebooks.

Activities:
There are several interactive activities included in this pack where students will answer questions, color, cut, and create. The Bats Mini-Booklet has the steps of the life cycle for students to put in order. Newly added is a 5 page Bats Flip Book.
