Bats Lapbook and Unit Study (October 2014)

This month Levi learned all about bats.   We timed it with Halloween to go along with the theme.  

These are the lapbook sources we used:
Royal Baloo Bat unit study
Homeschool Share Stellaluna
Enchanted Learning (anatomy)
Bat Graphing
Stellaluna lesson plans

I also made a lot of lapbook elements mostly using the fact boxes from the Magic School bus bat book.   I just wrote the title or question on the front and Levi filled in the inside.  

And this page has lots of great hands-on bat activities:
Bat Lesson Plans and also Easy Fun School.

Bat Artwork inspired by:

Some of the Books we used

The Truth About Bats (Magic School Bus chapter book)
Bats (Gail Gibbons)
Zipping, Zapping Zooming Bats
Eyes on Nature Bats
Bat Jamboree
Amazing Bats (Eyewitness Jr)
Zoobooks (magazine - link goes to this issue in a kindle format)

We also used the FREE animal report pages from Teachers Pay Teachers.  I can see us using this again for other animals, its laid out really well and includes all of the main things we learn about when studying an animal.  





And here is Levi explaining his lapbook:
