My Pet Rabbit Mini-book
What if your student had a pet rabbit? What would she name it? What would it eat? What would it like to do? Where would it live? Have fun letting your student imagine all of these things about her own pet rabbit.

My Rabbit Diagram
Introduce your student to animal diagrams with this simple rabbit anatomy mini-book.

Discuss rabbit anatomy. How is a rabbit different than a human? How is a rabbit different than a dog or a cat? A rabbit has big ears and big eyes. It also has soft fur, long hind legs and a short tail.

Encourage your student to cut and paste the labels to the rabbit diagram.

What Pet Should I Get?
Have fun with this shutterfold book. Ask your child which pets she would like to have. Under the flaps of the pets she’d like to have, write YES or a happy face. Under the flaps of the pets she would not like to have, write NO or a frowny face.

Pets in this shutterfold book include: cat, dog, fish, hamster, snake, and bird.

Rabbit Rhymes and Songs
There are four rabbit rhymes and songs cards and a pocket to store them in. Enjoy singing the songs and acting out the fingerplays together.

Rabbit Family Names
Just like humans have names, animal families have names, too. Teach your student the rabbit family names.

Male rabbit = buck
Female rabbit = doe
Baby rabbit = kitten or kit

Pet Rabbit Diet
An adult rabbit should have a regular diet of unlimited timothy grass, oat hay, or straw. Its diet should also include 1/2 cup of pellets, some veggies a little bit of fruit.

R is for Rabbit
This lapbook doesn’t include a mini-book for the letter R, but you could use this book to review or introduce the letter R. Just grab our letter R printables from our Alphabet Notebook.
