We spent a few days reading Stellaluna and learning about bats. Stellaluna is the story of a baby bat that gets separated from her mother and then lives with birds.
Things they learned about: where fruit bats live, echolocation, baby bats, whether animals are diurnal or noctural, whether animals are carniivores, herbivores, or omnivores, and the anatomy of a bat.
These are Caleigh's notebook pages. Colin did all the same things.
Here are some of the books opened up. She pasted pictures of animals in the books to show diurnal animals and nocturnal animals. She also pasted pictures in the correct spots to show whether the animal is a carnivore, omnivore, or herbivore. She labeled the parts of a bat and colored the map showing where fruit bats are found.
