Mary learns About the Body Coverings of Animals and so will your students!
Children will enjoy learning about the body coverings of animals as they recite and read this unforgettable rhyming text that teaches them the scientific concept of animals and why they have different types of skin.
Animal coverings are presented in this edition of the Mother Goose meets Mother Nature series. The familiar Mother Goose rhyme of Mary Had a Little Lamb is repeated in the fun text when Mary’s one lamb is sheared. She then has two snakes and discovers their skin is different. Finally, she has three birds with yet another type of covering. Eventually, Mary learns that each of the animal’s coverings exists to help them survive in their habitat. The numbers of each animal are intentional and get the child counting. After reading the book, the student can add additional animals with higher digits and continue the pattern.
The resource includes a printable 20 page guided reading book and a PowerPoint Show of the book. In addition, the text is easy for young readers to recite, track, and read. Additionally, the book includes full-color illustrations by award-winning author and illustrator, Dawn Stephens.
You can download this creative teacher resource and print an individual book for each student. Further, the students will read the story as a group when presented on a large screen with the PowerPoint Show. Certainly, this resource will allow you to teach reading and science at the same time.
