Bat Anchor Chart Poster - October Science and Writing Activity - Kindergarten
If you’re looking for a bat anchor chart / poster / bulletin board display FILLED with information to discuss bats, this download is for you! I love to use this chart during both writing and science as we explore bats together. Go over the body parts and labels with students, noting that there are over 1,400 species of bats worldwide and they may be gray, black or brown. They range in size from as small as a bee or as big as a small dog. Continue by reviewing the rest of the chart with included notes here: Among the variations, bats eat fruit, insects and animal blood. (My kids are always curious about the vampire bat, so they are relieved to learn they do NOT eat human blood. ) Bats are nocturnal, so they sleep upside down during the day, typically in rock crevices, trees, caves and buildings. They see well at night, not with sharp vision, but because of their second sight. They have a built in sonar, called echolocation, which is when the location of an object is reflected by sound.
Book companions you might read to go along with your discussions might include, but certainly are not limited to, the following titles: Zipping, Zapping, Zooming Bats!, Stellaluna, Bats – Creatures of the Night, Bats at the Ballgame, and There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bat. Are you a visual learner? Check out more bat activities among ALL of our October themes we do in our classroom in a link to blog, provided in the file.

Charts can simply be printed on standard 8.5 by 11 inch paper or enlarged to a poster sizes. You also have the option to use a projector to project the chart on your wall, tape an anchor chart paper to the wall, and trace the chart directly onto your paper.
