First graders were shown how to draw a bat, after learning some more about them in this perfectly matched book I found titled “Nightsong” by Ari Berk.
This book beautifully illustrates how bats use their radar to see at night, and tells of a young bat’s first flight all by himself. Really one of those special books that young students can relate to, and is a great match for this how to draw project.
