Whose Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

We just finished reading aloud Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George.  I remembered loving this book in 5th grade and my kids seemed to love it now!  I love those kind.  :-)  So, to follow up our discussion about wolves and life in the arctic, we made a wolf lapbook.


Map of lattitude & longitude, wolf population is in the northern latitude section.


 How wolves communicate, words that describe wolves starting with each letter of the word "Wolves," outer body parts of an arctic wolf (E's contribution), B's mini book report on Julie of the Wolves.
Changing  words to plurals (i.e. wolf to wolves), prey of wolves, wolf math problems, the developmental cycle of a wolf pup, and wolf idioms.

This was my favorite part (below) . . . finding scriptures in the Bible that referenced wolves.  Very fun!  The kids then copied the verses on the pages.   
 
Last, but not least, where we can find wolves in the U.S.
