Animal Study Freebie

I’ve been working hard on our Asia Unit Study for the 2015-16 school year.  I’ve been through geography and history and now am working on the science portion of  our program.  You might remember that we are doing animal science and geology in order to learn more about Asian countries and really bring those lessons home.  Plus, science gives us an opportunity to do lots of hands-on lessons to make our learning fun.

There are lots of interesting animals to study in Asia that we don’t have here in the U.S., so it will give us a chance to learn more deeply about animals to which we might not otherwise pay such close attention.  One of the things I have been remiss in teaching in science is the classification of animals.  Then again, we’ve never done a serious animal study before, unless you count nature study, and we tend to draw and write info in our nature journals then, so it never occurred to me to include it.

The Littles are really excited about doing serious animal science.  Middle can’t wait to do his own research and Littlest can’t wait to try his hand at drawing some of the beautiful creatures who make their homes in Asia.  So as I’ve worked on our unit study, I’ve come up with a worksheet that includes all the things I want them to learn along with all the things they want to learn.  Of course, this won’t be the only thing we do where these gorgeous animals are concerned, but I think it will give us a good starting point to learn the basic facts.

This worksheet would also be great to use for a nature study.  Or any kind of animal study you’re doing.  I made it generic so it can be included in all of the unit studies we’ll be doing next year.  Because it seems like it would be useful for so many things, I thought it would be great to offer it to my readers as a freebie.  The link is below.  Feel free to use it however you see fit.  I hope your littles enjoy it and learn gobs of stuff about animals using it.

    What a great idea!
    Just curious, how many units do you do a year?

      This is our first year to do just unit study. We’re covering Asia, Africa, and Oceania. I’m trying to work up studies to incorporate several countries at a time, so it could end up being anywhere from 4 to roughly 30. haha I’m trying to do 1 a week, allowing two weeks for the bigger countries. Since there are 32 weeks in our regular school year (not including summer science) it will be somewhere between 20 & 32. It’s a lot of planning. I’m very tired. lol
