All About Rabbits Nonfiction Informational Text Unit

Who can resist an adorable bunny rabbit? This nonfiction unit is filled with activities to teach your students all about rabbits, bucks, does, and kittens. Students will work on the reading informational text standards. I love to learn about rabbits in the Spring as we discuss how the weather changes and how many animal babies are born. It is also great to teach during the week of Easter without touching on the holiday. This unit includes a printable mini reader that will teach them all about rabbits with a matching colorful book with real photos. This real book can be projected via the digital Google link, downloaded as a PowerPoint, or shared as a pdf. You could even print it and put it in your classroom library. There are so many fun comprehension activities to complete after you read the story. You could do the included research project, make the fun rabbit craft, or complete the word work and writing activities. There are loads of goodies in this resource to become rabbit experts.
