I would LOVE to do a unit on bats right before Halloween this year! Does anyone know of any really cool art projects, science activities, writing activities, etc. to do? What about websites? Thanks!

Bat Bulletin Board

Last year my class had to do the bulletin board by the front office for October. I chose to do bats, just for those who don't "do Halloween".
I put the title: We Are Batty About School" and made bats out of cardboard egg cartons (3 compartments each) painted black, big wiggly eyes, and black pipecleaners bent for legs. I hung them on tree branches made from twisted brown butcher paper, a big orange moon, and a purple sky. It was easy, and looked very cute. My students were proud of their bats all month long! Sorry I don't have a picture.

I saw an adorable bat that used a black "boa" from the costume section....you cut it into approx. 2 inch chunks and that becomes the body. You cut wings out of paper and use white crayon to draw the fingers on the wings. Googly eyes, glue the furry body on--and an ADORABLE bat!

Echolocation game

I do this with my first-graders each year during our Bat unit. They love it! I don't know exactly if everyone understands echolocation afterwards ... but, I know the advanced students do.

I will try to explain ...

Assign 'trees' ... These students form a circle.
Assign 'moths' ... These students will be inside the circle repeatedly saying "Moth, moth..."

Assign a 'bat' ... This student is blindfolded and must catch all of the moths just by hearing them.

Once a moth is caught, he or she becomes a tree. When the bat comes toward a tree, the trees whisper "tree, tree." This helps the bat know that he is almost outside the boundary. Once all moths are caught, choose another bat and play continues.

Did I explain well enough?!?
