Bats are so interesting and a great topic during October. One book I really love to use in my class is National Geographic Kids: Bats. True to form, this book features loads of photographs of this nocturnal creature. This text has many interesting facts that your student will love to hear like what bats eat, where bats live, how they use echolocation, and more.
After your kiddos learn some facts about bats, they can complete the graphic organizer that is pictured below. (The clip art is from Melonheadz.)
Click on it if you would like a free copy to use with your students.
Also, if you are looking for a fun little craftivity to go along with your study of bats, click on the picture below for a free template and instructions for this bat headband. It's really easy to make and super cute.
