We are learning about bats!
This week we have been working on some animal research. We are gathering information from different sources to compile a report…
First we learned how to draw a bat–using a directed drawing technique. We made that bat drawing into a diagram by adding labels.
Here are a few examples: appearance diagrams
Our next step was looking at the different habitats of bats. We used some non-fiction books about bats to find the answers.
Some of the places they like to live include:
- inside buildings
- in old trees
- in woodlands
Which idea will you choose? We had to draw a picture based on our choice. (It needed to include a bat as well.)
We also learned that bats have to drink water every day, so they always live close to a creek, stream, pond or lake–so you may notice a number of the pictures have water in them…
Here are a few examples of our work: habitat pages
Today we are watching this video about Bats. We will also be learning some special facts about bats.
