What’s included in the Expedition Earth: Discovering God’s Animals
Each country contains a waterfall style mini-book with 6 animals from that country. The flip book has a fun facts sentence for your student to either trace or write depending on skill level. I plan on using this with my preschooler, first grader and 2nd grader as a group (I doubt my pre-k will be doing the writing, but she can cut out the pages and assemble for her animal book, I’ll leave it up to her).
The animal study also comes with animal classification cards for an animal discovery wall along with animal cards for each country so you can classify the animals as you are learning about them. I just made a simple bulletin board for our room so we have somewhere fun to display all of our animals as we learn them.
(I recommend writing the country names on the backs of the animal cards before they get all mixed up on your wall.)
Here’s a sample of the classification cards and Animals of Brazil cards:

NOTE: For the older kids I made a version with blank lines to write in their own facts, its a great research project!

Note: This is intended to be a supplement to the Expedition Earth curriculum but it can also be used as an independent animal unit study.
