The clear, simple text and stunning photos in Why Are Animals Purple? are perfect for teaching students about animal adaptations. You can start your lesson with a fun Readers Theater script that I’ve written to accompany the book. I’ve also created a Teachers Guide that makes connections to a wide variety of NGSS and Common Core standards.
For an innovative Reading Buddy experience, try a same-grade-level pairing in which an emergent reader shares Purple Animals (two simple words per page) and a more advanced reader shares Why Are Animals Purple? I guarantee great results.
