When fall comes around, it tends to get
B-A-T-T-Y in our classroom!
Teaching about bats is one of my favorite topics in the fall since we can do so much research and discuss about facts and fiction! Plus, who doesn’t love these gentle, misunderstood creatures?!
To start our learning on bats, we read some nonfiction and fiction books on them. There are so many amazing books on bats that I have come to love, so it’s hard to narrow them down. However, I have made a list of my favorites below.

After reading, we make a list of facts and myths on bats on an anchor chart.
From this list, the students then chose one fact and one fictional statement about bats and write them onto their Fact & Fiction boxes. After completion, students cut and glued their boxes onto their bats.
