Squirrels, Comprehensive Unit Study with Lesson Plans & Teacher Guide


I was absolutely fascinated – and saddened - while researching this topic of these intelligent, versatile and highly sensitive creatures and have finally settled on presenting the information in language that can be geared towards older or younger students.  The language and terminology as is is thus suitable for around Grades 4 and 5.  

With discussion and explanation it is suitable for younger learners.  Older learners will be able to study the information and complete the activities with a minimum of assistance.  The Activities, Comprehension and Revision exercises are ranged from young learners to older learners.

To cover all elementary age groups I have also included crossword puzzles, wordsearches, lesson plans, crafts and activities for the range Pre-K upwards.  Particularly for the kindergarten/grades 1-2 age groups I have included squirrel thematic printables that can be used in a classroom theme or Homeschool room setting. 

Teaching Guides and Lesson Plans and ideas, as well as the geography, history and location of the very many species of these beautiful creatures, many of which are endangered, have been included.

Simple healthy snacks and recipes are sure to delight any child (and adult), while riddles, songs and finger plays, Squirrel Games complete the early learning thematic unit. 

A special section on learning/teaching Haiku is a fun inclusion in this unit.

This unit on Squirrels was awesome. So many details and fun facts. We used it for our entire week long nature unit. Watching them in our yard and reading from the text in the unit. There were also questions and activities for the kids to complete. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
