Gray Wolf Lapbook Lessons
Here are some sample lessons from the Gray Wolf Lapbook:
Gray Wolf Territories
The area that is occupied by a pack of wolves is called a territory. The pack’s territory will have enough prey to support it, and the pack will defend this
territory from other packs of wolves and other carnivores it would have to compete with for food. Wolves will protect their territories by scent-markings, vocal communication, and fighting. In Minnesota, the gray wolf’s territories range from about 25 to 150 square miles, while territories in Canada and Alaska can range from about 300 to 1,000 square miles.
Wolves live in a pack, which is a group of wolves that live and work together to hunt for food and take care of the pups. There is an order of hierarchy in every wolf pack, separated into three groups.
Alphas are the top rank in the social order of the wolf pack. A separate social hierarchy exists for males and females, so a pack has both an alpha male and an alpha female. They are usually the parents of most of the other members of the pack.
Beta is the second rank in the social order of a wolf pack. A separate social hierarchy exists for males and females, so a pack may have both a beta male and a beta female. A wolf at this rank will usually dominate all of the other wolves in its gender except the alpha wolf. The beta wolf is also called an assistant.
The lowest ranking member in the social order of a wolf pack is called the omega.
The offspring of the adult parents join the pack, as well as an occasional unrelated wolf. All the wolves know their place in the pack, and when the leaders are present, all other wolves will hold their tails low or lie on the ground. The size of a wolf pack can be anywhere from two wolves to over thirty wolves, depending on number of pups and mortality rates.
