All About Alligators

In Science, we have been busy learning about plants and animals. My students LOVE science more than any other time of the day! As an extension to one our lessons, I plan to read aloud the book All About Alligators by Jim Arnosky.

My students just can't seem to get enough of non-fiction books! I love using anticipation guides before reading non-fiction stories to activate my students' prior knowledge and build curiosity about a topic. Here is an anticipation guide that I created to go along with the book, All About Alligators by Jim Arnosky.

If you would like a blank anticipation guide, this website has two great templates that you can print.
