A continuation of Cache and Cookie’s Animal Alphabet Series!
Kindergarten through second grade teachers may engage their students through DE streaming’s 25 minute full video titled “Animal Alphabet.” This video cleverly uses the animal kingdom to teach students their alphabet. You can also use this video’s segments to engage students–one letter at a time.
P-Q-R Lesson Plan
1. Play segments P-R from the video Animal Alphabet on DE streaming.
2. Have students practice writing the letters P-R.
3. Have students explore Animal Universe: The Serengeti on DE streaming Plus. This interactive game allows students to associate animals with their habitats. Once students have chosen the correct inhabitants to the Serengeti, a video will pop up with a segment about that particular animal.
Animal Universe is available in many other habitats for students to explore such as The Great Plains, Pennsylvania Forest, Arctic Tundra, Australian Grasslands, Amazon Rainforest, Bangladesh Mangrove Forest, Florida Everglades, Kelp Forest just to name a few.
4. Another fun activity would be for the students to create polar bear masks out of paper plates.
Here are the materials your students will need:
3. A paper plate
4. 15-20 cotton balls per student
5. A ball of yarn
6. A printed out copy of the polar bear’s eyes.
7. A printed out copy of the polar bear’s nose and mouth.
8. A single hole-puncher
9. A printed out copy of the polar bear’s ears.
1. Have the students cover their paper plates by gluing cotton balls all over the surface. (bottom side up)
2. After the glue has dried, have the students cut out and glue the polar bear’s eyes on top of the cotton balls.
3. After the glue has dried, have the students cut out and glue the polar bear’s nose/mouth piece on top of the cotton balls.
4. Take the hole-puncher and punch one hole on each side of the plate.
5. Cut the polar bear’s ears out and glue them to the top of the plate.
6. Tie a string through the holes on each side of the plate.
7. Have students put on their polar bear masks!
The masks should come out looking something like this:
Take a picture of your students with their masks! Tweet us on twitter @DESupportStars with their pictures so we can see how great they turned out! Check back next Friday for a continuation of our Animal Alphabet series!
