Love having a no-prep resource like this that I can leave for a sub and my students are not just doing busy work. They were really learning and practicing reading skills! Great for science literacy and adaptations.
There certainly are some interesting animals in the Galapagos! Students enjoyed reading about their adapations. I think the marine iguanas spraying salt out of their noses was the favorite of my class.
