Bats in October is a great lesson to teach about nocturnal animals.
Scholastic Let’s Find Out magazine did not have a bat lesson this year but the great thing about Scholastic is that they give you access to previous years lessons online. I will put a link to this for those of you that subscribe. I decided to create a bats lap book to do the last week of October. I found great books about bats and nocturnal animals on Amazon, I will share links below. I created this lap book using printables that I found on Pinterest.
