When we study mammals, we are diving into the incredible diversity of animals that share a family tree. From the sleek seal to the prickly porcupine, and everything in between, there are so many unique creatures to discover in the world of mammals! This unit study is perfect for elementary school science class or as a homeschool nature study. It includes all the activities, worksheets, decor, flashcards, and readings you will need for an awesome Mammals unit study!
Age group: This mammals unit study was created with universal design and mixed age groups in mind. This cactus unit study is great for elementary school but is easily adapted for use with other age groups as well.
