Animal Families

Mother’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday, May 11, in many countries. In honor of this important day, we wrote and designed a NEW lesson on Animal Families!

In this eight-page Word Bank lesson, students will learn the names of mother, father, and baby animals of certain families such as lion, cow, chicken, deer, etc. They will practice this vocabulary through several fun, colorful activities, including a picture dictionary, matchup, word choice, word search, word scramble, and spelling bee. This lesson finishes up with discussion questions so that your students can practice using the vocab in context. These activities are suitable for individual, pair, group, or class work—the choice is yours!

The animal family pictures are also available as flashcards at the end of the lesson. For some ideas on how to use flashcards in class, check out 9 Ways to Use Cards & Flashcards in Class.
