Animals > Water Birds > Goose

A goose is a bird, and only birds have feathers. A goose is a waterfowl bird that looks like a duck but is usually larger, with longer neck and legs and a more pointed bill. Some geese are raised by farmers, and some are found in the wild. The young is called a gosling, and the male is called a gander. The plural is geese, and a group of geese is called a gaggle.

Review this lesson plan for additional information, activities and literature suggestions.

Alphabet Activities:

Children age 3 and under

Print a letter G coloring page  and a goose coloring page behind it or on a separate page if using paints to decorate later. Discuss other letter G words found on the activity worksheet.

Trace letter G's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter. Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page.

Children can trace and color the letter G's. Encourage children to color the image. Write the word goose on the finished coloring page.

Handwriting worksheet tips:

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letter correctly.

During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

Have the children find all the letter Gs in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them.
