If your children are like mine they enjoy learning about animals around them. They really enjoy it when they get to learn about animals that are beyond their reach!
The Color and Copywork: Facts about Arctic Animals is a fun way to teach your children all about 7 of the animals who live in (and near) the arctic.
The Color and Copywork: Facts about Arctic Animals
- Arctic Fox
- Polar Bear
The idea of using this kind of pack is that your children are practicing many different skills while learning about an adorable animal. Choose to print off the color or the black and white version. Then present the pack to your child. They copy the fact on the page including capitalization and punctuation. This is practicing handwriting, spelling, grammar, and hand-eye coordination.
Each animal included in this pack has at least 5 fun facts for your child to copy. At the end of the facts they have a coloring sheet that matches the graphic used on their fact pages. You can break this pack up and study one animal per week, adding in several living books and eLessons. You can have them work on one animal per day while reading about them as you go along. Or you can break this study up to work for your family however you and your children best do work.
Bear in mind these are basic facts that are meant to introduce your child to the animal they are learning about. Use this as a tool to open up a world of learning for your children!
Who is this pack for:
This pack is perfect for children in grades K – 4. It can be adapted for use with older or younger children based on their needs.
Things I recommend for Color and Copywork:
- Erasable Colored Pencils – again adding color adds interest to the task at hand. Having an eraser means that if a mistake is made it can be easily remedied!
- Durable binders – this keeps all of the papers in one spot so that there aren’t losses. We all know how it goes when we have loose paper.
- Binder clips – we use these to clip together the pages that are done so we don’t have a ton of flipping from page to page in our binders.
- Divider tabs – if you know me, you know that I love to have my notebooks and such organized. That is why I love to have divider tabs in our copywork folders.
