As you will know… I LOVE STORYTELLING, and I try to use tales as many times as possible in my class. During this term, some of my students are working animal classification. They are able to classify animals depending on their nutrition, their habitat, their body….
The end of the unit is about invertebrate animals and their groups. Surprisingly, all of them seem to be very excited to know things about invertebrate animals, so that I decided to go deeper. Here I show you some activities to work invertebrates through one lovely story: SHARING A SHELL by Julia Donaldson.
Before explaining the story, you can show your kids TRUE clams, starfishes, shells…. In order to introduce the characters of the story. During the story ask them about some facts of the animals that appear in the book.
- ANIMALS IN THE STORY
All together, kids can tell you all the animals in the story. Make them to know their names.
After that, ask them for the invertebrate groups:
Children work in different groups to classify all the animals in the correct group. Make them think about their facts such as the body, nutrition, habitat….
4. WORK GROUP!
Give them one invertebrate animal and make them work on it. They can search information and prepare a presentation for the rest of the class. It can be a way to make them speak in public.
