Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction Sample:

  1. Ask: Have you ever played hide and seek with friends? How or where did you hide or conceal yourself so it would be difficult for others to find you? (if students have not played hide and seek, ask what they would do.)
  2. Allow for responses and discussion.
  3. Ask students if they believe animals ever play hide and seek, and how they would do it?
  4. Allow for responses and discussion. Introduce camouflage.
  5. Distribute Animal Camouflage content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Save the final question for lesson closing. Show a video from the resources. Use additional resources to enhance understanding.
  6. Distribute Activity page. Read and review the instructions. Depending on level of the class, pairing students for the activity may be best. One person may draw, while both share ideas for the new animal creation.
