This week at the RBE Library, our 4th graders are studying owls. In the library, they will be learning about owls as well.
We have 4 stations that the students will visit. At the different stations they will be learning about the Life Cycle of an Owl. They will label a diagram and learn about adaptations of an owl. They will also look at some fiction and nonfiction texts to answer some questions about owls. Then they will identify some of the different owls that populate Texas.
The stations signs we will be using are HERE. The students will use the pages below at each station to record their learning.
Station #1 Owl Life Cycle
At this station students will complete the Station 1 activity page by looking at a book about owl life cycles and watch a short video of another book about the owl life cycle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXfy4Cb9thQ
