Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?
Let's Learn about Wolves!
Gray Wolves were taken off the Endangered Species List
How do you feel about Gray Wolves? What do you know about wolves in general? In the Wolf Unit Study you can learn about the anatomy of these fascinating canines, where they live, their distinctive features and how they raise their young as well as the ways that wolves are being protected from extinction.
Each of these hands-on learning activities will help your children gain a better appreciation for wolves while learning to read, write, and observe. We will be learning math and science related to the wolf theme as well as the history and folklore associated with wolves. History has not been kind to wolves and their near extinction testifies to that.
What can we do to save the Big Bad Wolf from extinction?
Gray Wolf Territory
Compare Wolf Territory over time
Wolves were once abundant over much of North America and Eurasia but now inhabit a very small portion of their former range because of widespread destruction of its habitat, human encroachment of their habitat, and the resulting human-wolf encounters that sparked attempts at total extermination.
The gray wolf is, however, very adaptable. Gray wolves reproduce and expand in areas where allowed and are regarded as being of least concern for extinction.
Today, wolves are protected in some areas, hunted for sport in others, or may be subject to extermination as perceived threats to livestock and pets in other areas.
Wolf Themed Bulletin Board - Word Wall with a Wolf Theme
Creating a Word Wall for the Wolf Unit Study
Today we will begin our unit study on wolves by talking about the relationship between each of the members of the family in a wolf pack. While discussing, begin to list words that the children might need to spell when writing about the wolf pack. Words on this Word Wall might include:
male, female, wolf, pack, wolf pack, pup, canine
Write each of these words with white chalk on black construction paper cut in the shape of a wolf. (Spraying with hairspray will fix the chalk.) Mount these words on a bulletin board with a snowy open field scene as a background. By attaching the wolf shaped word cards with black push pins the children can take them to their desks when they need to spell a word and then reattach them later. Be sure to keep a supply of paper wolves handy for adding more wolf related words as you discover them.
The Wolf Unit Study - Let's learn about wolves!
Next I lead the children over to the reading nook which has been converted from a Lemming's , River Otter's, Woodchuck's, Frog's Den or Bird Blind depending on the unit we studied before. The children discover that the den now has a stack of books about wolves. I also include a pack of stuffed wolves for cuddling with while reading. I tell the children that our wolf pack loves to have stories read to them and that during silent reading time they will be able to read to one of the wolves.
A Unit Study to Accompany Look to the North: A Wolf Pup Diary by George, Jean Craighead
A Year in the Life of a Wolf Pup
Let's take a trip to the far north where we will follow three new wolf pups. From the den they were born in we see the three wolf pups as they begin to grow and begin to explore the wider world. Notice how the passing time is expressed in number of weeks at the top left as you turn each page. There are also sentences written in italics that tell what might be happening at that time in the world of the reader with a small picture illustrating it on the opposite side.The large central picture and text show us how the wolf pups are progressing.

Compare Fact wolves Fiction
Wolves and Venn Graphs
Comparing Wolf Information
When we finish we talk about the difference between fiction and non-fiction and make a Venn Graph to describe the similarities and differences between the wolves as they are portrayed in different stories.
Which stories of wolves are fiction and which are non-fiction?
Ask the children to show the point in the book that they are talking about in order to help them learn to check their facts. Post-it notes are perfect for keeping track of where they found the information without having to write in the book.
As you reread the story on other days, children may find other similarities and differences to be added to the Wolf Venn Graph.

Wolf Pups in the Den - During April, wolves have litters of six to ten pups.
After you have read about how wolf cubs are born, invite children to act out the life of wolf cubs. You might use the Milk Carton Igloo reading nook from the Lemmings Unit Study or the space under your Reading Loft as your wolf den.
My children love to snuggle together in the den to read wolf stories. Christmas lights or a flashlight work well for reading lamps.

Measure with a Wolf
Use the overhead projector to blow up a picture of a wolf to life size. Draw around the outline of the wolf on a large piece of paper or cardboard. You may wish to make two or more cutouts to use them for measuring distances in Wolf Units. Laminating the wolf cut outs will make them last longer.
Measuring in non-standard units is one of the skills listed on most state standards.
Wolves in the Reading Nook
Stuffed animals help to bring the Wolf Unit to life.
We use these wolves for cuddling with when reading, for acting out stories, and for manipulatives when trying to understand difficult math problems.
Math problems such as: 3 wolves are in the den. 3 more wolves come back home. How many are in the den now?
You might ask your parents to run a fund raiser to get your stuffed wolf collection going. We have a pack of 6 Cuddlekins Wolves in our wolves' den. Each year I try to add to my collection of stuffed animals.

Wolves are Predators
Wolves are Top Predators
As top predators, wolves play an important role in an ecosystem. Wolves can be found in temperate forests, deserts, mountains, tundra, taiga and grasslands. Because they are highly adaptable, wolves have thrived. Notice in the above diagram that wolves help keep populations of fish, amphibians, birds and mammals in check.
This link will take you to a . These words can be used to create a word search, crossword puzzle or to help label a wold habitat bulletin board.
My children loved reading the book Gray Wolf by Jack London in order to imagine what it is like to be a wolf. Our favorite passage reads:
Gray Wolf hunts on a moonlit winter night until suddenly his senses alert him to the presence of a strange pack. White Wolf steps out, the two animals meet, circling each other, leaving together, and eventually become the leaders of a new pack.

Wolfpack Population Game - Wolf Population Fluxuation Activity
A pack of wolves (K-4) stands in a circle with optional dress-up of fake-fur tails and fuzzy ears. Half the kids are sitting to show population balance. Kids sitting down from the beginning are wolf pups ready to be born. The teacher reads the shuffled cards and begins to call out the scenarios.
If it is a decreasing scenario, one wolf sits. If the wolf population increases, a wolf stands up. This continues until either the entire wolfpack dies and the wolf population is doomed, the wolf population sky-rockets until no-one else can stand up, or whoever calls out scenarios runs out of cards. You may choose only to use the scenarios shown in the site below or create your own.

Writing about Wolves
After reading this story we write a class predictable book with alternating pages:
A wolf is wild.
A dog is tame.
A wolf kills for it's food.
A dog is given dog food.
The children choose a page to illustrate. The pages are put in a three ring notebook. Anyone can add more pages later during Writer's Workshop. The book is then put in the classroom library and children are allowed to take it home to read to their families.
The First Dog - Dogs are descended from Wolves
The gray wolf (Canis lupus) is also known as the timber wolf or wolf. They measure 26-36 inches high and weigh 70-150 pounds.
To understand these numbers we use an overhead projector to blow up an outline drawing of a wolf to the measurements given. We then trace around the outline on poster board and cut out two wolves. We use these wolf cut outs to measure distances in wolf units.
To understand the weight we fill a gunnysack with 70 pounds of beans add ears and a mouth and let the wolf hang out near the rug as a pillow for silent reading time.

The following books will have great ideas for 4th - 6th grade classrooms.
Non-Fiction Wolf Books
When we have questions about wolves I show the children how to look up the answers. Non-Fiction books are harder to read to a group than fiction so I find that it is often easier to have grandparents come in at Silent Reading time to read with the children. The children benefit from the individual attention and the grandparents get another chance to connect with the children.

What other verbs can you think of that are associate with wolves?

I have a 3 poster sized picture frames with Plexiglas replacing the glass in the bathroom. I use one for artwork the children make. I use one for word lists such as wolf verbs. The third might be a map, a famous painting or a graph related to wolves. The poster of wolves below is a great hit with the children.

When they bring the Wolf Literacy Bag back to class, the children get to add the information that they gathered to the class graph.

Save the Wolves
Sign the petition to Save America's Wolves.
America's wolves need our help!
America's wolves were nearly eradicated in the 20th century. Now, after a remarkable recovery in parts of the country, wolves are once more threatened.
In the Northern Rockies the federal government has put forth a proposal that could lead to the slaughter of hundreds of wolves in Idaho and Wyoming. Even Yellowstone wolves could be shot on site if they wander outside the park's boundaries!
In Alaska state officials continue to allow airborne gunners to kill hundreds of wolves. Easy targets against the snow, hundreds of wolves have been shot from above or chased to exhaustion and then killed by aerial gunners who land and execute them at point-blank range.
In the Southwest misinformation and anti-wolf sentiment runs high, with wolf recovery in Arizona and New Mexico limited to a defined area if the wolves set up territories elsewhere, they are captured and returned.
Defenders of Wildlife continues the fight to promote common sense wolf management, working with federal and state officials and private land-owners to ensure that science, not politics, guides decision-making about the future of these American icons.
