Building Blocks of Science® A New Generation: Discovering Animals Unit Kit

(backordered: in stock 9/21/22)


Grade Pre-K/TK. During Discovering Animals, students explore, sort, compare, and experience the similarities, differences, and basic needs of animals. Live pond snails and redworms encourage students to observe carefully, look more closely with a hand lens, draw what they see, mimic movement, discover how parents and offspring are alike and different, and build on their intuitive ideas about the basic needs of animals. Sorting a selection of models provides students with multiple opportunities to compare themselves both to the model animals and to those taking up residence in their classroom. The unit kit includes a Teacher's Guide, a voucher for living materials, and enough supplies and apparatus for a class of up to 24 students.
