Learning Objectives

Students will be able to draw and write about an animal who lives in the forest.


(5 minutes)
  • Display one of the images of the forest on the board.
  • Have students look carefully at the image without talking. Have them notice the details they see.
  • Ask the students to describe what they see in the image, using the sentence stem, “I see____.” Have them focus on what they can see, not what they think they see. For example, “I see trees.”
  • Tell the class that they will now get to learn more about what they see in the pictures.
