Early Birds Step 1

Step 1
Decide whether you prefer daytime or nighttime. Cut and glue construction paper scraps to make either a diurnal or nocturnal animal to represent your decision. Use markers to add details.

Early Birds Step 2

Step 2
Attach the animal to the graph in the correct row. Use the completed graph to write questions to share with classmates, such as "Are there more feathered animals in the day or night?" and "Is more of our class diurnal or nocturnal?"

Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
