The Teacher's Corner Resources Culminating a Mammal Unit Grades 2+
A simple hands-on activity for the end of your unit. As a culminating idea on my animals unit, I label five poster boards with the titles of the animal groups. I give each one of my five teams a labeled poster board and some magazines. They are to find all the animals that they can that fit into their animal group and cut them out of the magazine. They then make a collage of animals on their poster board. When each group is finished, we have one collage for each animal group with tons of pictures. You can easily adapt this and do it only for mammals.
