Text Features: Labeling

Elementary, English Language Learning, Language Arts

What is labeling and why is it important? Students will learn about information in text by identifying and labeling the parts of a Bald Eagle’s head. This is a wonderful lesson for young students and English Language Learners. It focuses on eagles, but the lesson provides additional opportunities for teaching and learning labeling and the names of body parts.

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/.
