Text Features: Labeling

Elementary, Language Arts

Elementary students will use labeling to understand information in text by identifying and labeling the parts of a Bald Eagle’s head. This lesson will take 30 minutes of class time.

Additional Resources

I use the book Bald Eagles by Trace Taylor to introduce students to the concept of labeling. You can use Taylor’s book, find pictures of eagles online, or use the pictures provided here. The pictures are also included in the lesson package.

Teachers are welcome to apply for an educational account to observe incubation, hatching, and eaglets with other classes from around the country. The chat is moderated by Raptor Resource Project volunteers. Link: https://www.raptorresource.org/classroom/.
