This week’s Mentor Text Monday is with Sandra Markle’s book, What If You Had Animal Hair?
Sandra Markle also has written similar texts such as What If You Had Animal Feet!? and What If You Had Animal Teeth!? All of these could easily be used for the scientific exploration of adaptations.
Furthermore, it could be used as a springboard in writing. Have students decide which animal’s hair they would like to have and write an opinion piece explaining why. I also think it would be fun to have students research animals and create a whole class version through another characteristic — instead of teeth, feet, and/or hair, why not explore noses…
What If You Had Animal Hair? is so much fun — and I love when kids can have fun (and learn secretly).
Don’t wait! Head to Amazon (aff. link) and grab these books, What If You Had Animal Hair, What If You Had Animal Feet!?, and What If You Had Animal Teeth!?, for your classroom library today to teach animal adaptations!
