Alligator Poetry from the Classroom Swamp

Alligator Pie is a great poem for introducing the alligator theme. Use it in a reading chart and then go on to learn about the alligators.

Alligators bring us eye to eye with the watery, muddy world of the swamp.

Write a poem or explore an alligator hole. Get wet, muddy and excited about reading, science and math.

What is an alligator? - Alligators are...

American Alligators

Alligators are reptiles with large bodies, thick arms and legs, and very powerful tails. Compare alligators with crocodiles. Alligators have wide snouts. Crocodiles have narrow snouts.

Males alligators can weigh 500 lbs to over 1000 pounds. Adult Alligators can grow to be 13 to 14.5 feet long. Half of an alligator's length is in its tail.

An alligator's tail is mostly used to propel itself through the water thus, alligators travel very quickly in water but are unable to move quickly on land except for short lunges.

Alligators have five toes in front and four in back just like woodchucks.

Alligator Feet

Alligator vs. Crocodile

Make a chart or Venn Graph to compare alligators and crocodiles.

As you learn more and more about these reptiles add information to your chart.

  • Pay attention to the placement of their teeth.
  • Notice the shape of their snouts
  • Map their ranges
  • Are there differences in their diet?
  • Do they live in fresh or salt water?

Alligator Hole

Alligators keep Holes Open during the Dry Spells

During the dry season, alligators create "gator holes" which may be the only source of water around.

Make a bulletin board of an Alligator Hole and label it "Who Lives in the Alligator Hole?"

As you read about alligators draw the animals and plants that are found in and around the hole.

Label each of the plants and animals to make a thematic "Word Wall"

Alligator Pie

Alligator Pie

by Dennis Lee

Here is the poem that this unit study is based on. I have it written on poster board. The children love to read along as the helper of the day points to each of the words. It isn't long before they are able to pick out individual words and start to use them in their writing.

Alligator pie, alligator pie,

If I don't get some I think I'm gonna die.

Give away the green grass, give away the sky,

But don't give away my alligator pie.

Alligator stew, alligator stew,

If I don't get some I don't know what I'll do.

Give away my furry hat, give away my shoe,

But don't give away my alligator stew.

Visit Canadian Poetry Online to read the rest of the poem. Children love to use highlighter tape to find the word alligator. We use green highlighter tape for the word alligator and then other colors for other words.

Dennis Lee is the Canadian Poet who wrote Alligator Pie in 1974.

Florida Allgator - Alligator in the Everglades

Everglades Alligator

Everglades Alligator

Sitting on an Alligator!

When you walk though Shark Valley in the Everglades you often find alligators hanging out in the fun right on the pathway.

One day we were walking through the park with my Mother-in-Law. She thought that the alligator was a statue, not a real live animal. We stopped her just in time from sitting down on its back.

Would you be scared to walk around an alligator sunning itself on the path?

Everglades Poem! - by Susie Saenz

Boardwalk at Big Cypress Bend, Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, Florida

Boardwalk at Big Cypress Bend, Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, Florida

Along the Anhinga Trail

This is a poem I thought of while exploring the Anhinga Trail. I like the

way it sounds like the wind through the meadows:

On the little meadow,

By the trails side,

In a little bush,

The mocking birds hide,

By the lily pads,

Underneath the waters glow,

An anhinga finds a fish,

Putting on quite a show,

Cicadas buzz 'round,

As the alligators sleep,

The turtles come up to breath,

Then keep swimming in the deep,

Warblers flit around,

Through the tall grasses green,

The look around for danger,

With their little eyes so keen,

The green heron sits,

And seems to wait all day,

Until it spots it's lunch,

And, hunting, flies away,

A damselfly doesn't fly,

As well as a dragonfly,

But I know it'll probably try,

To soar, majestic, true and high,

Walking back on the trail I see,

Otters coming to greet me,

And air plants upon the trees,

Little fish are here swimming,

Purple flowers blossoming,

And tall grass blowing in the wind,

All this on the trail I've found,

And only by looking around,

The Everglades has much to see,

Just look around, take time like me!

Crunch and Munch It's Time for Lunch - Lunch for the Aliigator's Cousin

Once there was a peaceful river...

On the banks of this river lived a greedy crocodile.

His name was Crunch.

All the creatures of the river would tremble when they heard his voice:

'Crunch and munch!

Crunch and munch!

My name is Crunch.

And I want my lunch!'

The children love to repeat this refrain over and over. I wrote it on a chart and have it posted by the door where we go to lunch. We chant it as we finish picking up and line up for lunch. It also makes a fun song to sing quietly in a creepy voice as we go down the hall to lunch.

I read Crunch, the Crocodile by Josephine Croser to many, many children over the years. They all loved it.

Unscramble and Feed the Alligator - Game of Alligator Words

Set up the alligator on a table with the pie plate in front of him.

Make a list of animals that alligators eat.

Draw a picture of each one and write the scrambled letters to it's name.

Children unscramble the letters and put the alligator's prey in the Alligator Pie.

Alligator Imagination Station - Alligator Manipulatives

Set out some alligators and let the children use their imaginations. Most children will use these alligators to make up stories. This becomes a prewriting exercise. When it's time for Writing Workshop all they need to do is write down the story.

The Alligator Nest - Texas Alligator

Texas Alligator

Texas Alligator

Alligator Nests, eggs and Babies

Alligators make nests of composting grass and mud. The heat created by the composting process helps to keep the alligator eggs warm. The female begins to form her nest by clearing an area 13 to 18 feet across.

Go out into a field with a rope or string 6 1/2 to 9 feet long. Have one child hold one end and stay in that place. Have another child hold the other end. While stretching the rope as tight as possible, this second child walks in a circle to form the base of the alligator nest.

Do you see why we divided the measurement in half. We are now using the radius instead of the diameter because we are creating the circle from the center.

Now have all the children help clear the space placing the grass and other vegetation in the center of the circle. The female alligator will pile it up 1-2 feet high and 3 1/2 to 6 feet in diameter. Use a yardstick to measure your pile. Is it as big as an alligator nest?

The mother alligator will lay her eggs by the first week in July. Look at a calendar. Notice the seasons of the year. Research average temperatures to see if you can determine the ideal temperature for laying alligator eggs.

Then research the hours of daylight. When is the longest day of the year. Would the amount of sunlight effect the time of year that an alligator lays her eggs?

Do you have plastic eggs left over from Easter? Alligators lay 20 - 70 oval shaped eggs. Alligator eggs are not hard like chicken eggs. They are soft and leathery but we can pretend that the Easter Eggs are alligator eggs. Make piles of ten eggs and skip count up to 70 eggs to place in your alligator nest.

An alligator's eggs measure 3 to 3 1/2 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. How does that compare to your plastic Easter eggs? How does the alligator egg compare with a chicken egg?

Now dig a hole in the center of your nest and use your yardstick to measure 3 to 14 inches down into the center of the nest and place your pretend alligator eggs in the nest.

It takes about 65 days for the alligator eggs to incubate. Mark the date on your calendar. How many weeks is that? How many months?

This alligator activity involves lots of opportunities for hands-on measurement practice. Children learn math best when it is hands-on and relevant to what they are studying and interested in.

Graphing Egg Layers

Mother Alligators Protect their Young

The female alligator stays close to guard the eggs from raiding raccoons, skunks and opossums.

After the eggs hatch in late summer, the pod of baby alligators will stay together through their first winter and often through their second winter as well.

The mother alligator stays close to her pod of babies, protecting them from male alligators, herons and humans.

The Alligator Nest - Where do baby alligators come from?

Alligator Eggs Hatching

Alligator Eggs Hatching

Baby Alligators Grow Up

Baby alligators must feed themselves. They eat minnows crayfish, snails, insects and tadpoles. They grow 9 to 10 inches each year for the first five years. As they mature, their diet expands to include fish, turtles, snakes, frogs, waterfowl, wading birds, raccoons, carrion and just about anything they can catch. By six years of age, they are mature and ready to breed.

WARNING: A female alligator will protect her family. Never approach a pile of rotting grass. Never approach a pod of baby alligators.

Oviparous Center - Alligators are Oviparous Animals

Alligator Hatching Poster

Alligator Hatching Poster

Oviparous Animals

Oviparous animals are animals that lay eggs.

1. Put an egg laying animal in each egg.

2. On the inside of the egg write the name of the animal.

3. Provide a recording sheet with the sentence "__________are egg layers."

4. Children open the egg and write the name on the record sheet.

Alligator Math - Use Alligator mouths to indicate Greater Than or Less Than signs.

This is a fun way to learn the Greater Than/Less Than symbols. You can even let the kids paint their hands green. Once dry, their hands become the alligators that eat the greater amount.

Go to Edutunes.com! to listen to the song.

Greater Than Less Than Alligator Math Game - Math Manipulatives from the Swamp

Greater Than Less Than Alligator

Alligator Number Muncher Game

The alligator down in the number swamp is very hungry. As we all know, higher numbers have more calories than lower numbers, so the higher numbers are the ones that the alligator wants to eat.

1. Lay out two cards.

2. The alligator eats the card with the higher number.

3. If the two cards are equal, feed the alligator two more cards.

Alligator Teeth - Check out the Alligator's Smile

Scientists have learned much through the study of animal jaws and teeth - diet, predatory habits and species size to name a few. Until now, most classroom study was limited to textbook pictures and descriptions.

Hands on Animal Bites brings the study of animal habits to a much more personal level. Each kit includes a fascinating collection of teeth and mandible fragments chosen to reflect the diversity of diet and behavior within the animal kingdom.

Three samples from each of the major dietary groups - herbivore, carnivore and omnivore - have been handcrafted to bring stark realism to the classroom.

This unique science kit is ideal for the exploration and teaching of the differences and adaptability that occur in nature, and functions as an exciting learning center perfect for individual, group and classroom instruction.

Included are replicas of a hippopotamus, beaver, mountain gorilla, coyote, Alligators, African Lion, grizzly bear and baboon - each an excellent representative of it respective group.

Chalkboard

Alligator Sitting on a Log Poem

There was an alligator sitting on a log.

Down in the pool he saw a little frog.

In jumped the alligator!

Around went the log!

Splash went the water, and away swam the frog!

Children love to write on the board. Challenge them to write as many words as possible that rhyme with log on the board.

  • log
  • frog
  • bog
  • hog
  • dog
  • cog
  • fog
  • jog:

For more advanced writers there are also

  • pollywog
  • eggnog
  • Prague

Can they use these new rhyming words to create more verses?

If you see an alligator...

Alligator Poem

Row, Row, Row your boat, gently down the stream,

If you see an alligator don't forget to scream!

My kids loved this variation on the traditional verse. We acted it out in the living room with the couch as a boat and our kitty as the alligator. We also played with a paper boat and a toy alligator in our sensory table.

In the classroom, I wrote this verse on chart paper large enough for all to see the words. We sang along as I pointed to each word. Soon each of the children were able to point to the words as we sang.

Some of the activities we did with the words included:

  • Count the number of times you see the word row
  • Find the two rhyming words (stream, scream)
  • Notice the word an before the word alligator. Why is it an instead of a?
  • Use highlighter tape to find all the punctuation
  • Find the compound word (forget)
  • Find the adverb (gently)
  • Find the contraction (don't). What two words are squished together to form the contraction? (do, not)

Alligator Pie

Alligator pie, alligator pie,

If I don't get some I think I'm gonna die.

Give away the green grass, give away the sky,

But don't give away my alligator pie.

Alligator stew, alligator stew,

If I don't get some I don't know what I'll do.

Give away my furry hat, give away my shoe,

But don't give away my alligator stew.

Alligator soup, alligator soup,

If I don't get some I think I'm gonna droop.

Give away my hockey stick, give away my hoop,

But don't give away my alligator soup.

Little Crocodile

How doth the little crocodile by Lewis Carol

How doth the little crocodile...

How doth the little crocodile

Improve his shining tail,

And pour the waters of the Nile

On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin

How neatly spreads his claws,

And welcomes little fishes in,

With gently smiling jaws!

Dancing Alligators

Alligator Jump Rope Rhymes

Alligator, Alligator, Turn Around


Alligator, alligator, turn around.

Alligator, alligator, dance on your toes.

Alligator, alligator, touch your nose.

Alligator, alligator, jump up now.

Alligator, alligator, take a bow.

Alligator, alligator, stomp your feet.

Alligator, alligator, take a seat.

Alligator Literacy Bag

Alligator Themed Literacy Bag

Start with an alligator backpack and then add a couple of books about alligators and a few games that practice literacy skills or math facts. What do you have? Why an Alligator Literacy Bag.

Children love to take home literacy bags to read the stories with their families or reading to themselves in the car on the way home. Once home they can play the games and do activities they learned in school or at the library with their families.

These literacy bags are so popular with children that they often beg to take them home. They may not even realize that this is homework. What better way to get kids to practice the skills they are learning then to give them games and stories they love?

There is also a Tooth Fairy Literacy Bag that the kids love to take home related to what we have been learning about alligator teeth.

Walking Through Alligator Swamp Game

Alligator Games - Play an Alligator Game

The game Walking Through Alligator Swamp comes from Sherry Kroll. What a cleaver way to use those mismatched socks that we all have lying around the house! The socks are the alligators. It is your child's task to walk though Alligator Swamp, pick up the frog and walk back to shore without stepping on an alligator.

  • Toss a few Alligators (mismatched socks) around in the swamp (rug or floor)
  • Pick up a frog and walk through the swamp without stepping on an alligator
  • Try walking with two frogs.
  • How many frogs can you carry across the swamp?

This game helps children learn balance and spacial relations.

  • Walking Through Alligator Swamp
    Can your child rescue the beanbag frog without stepping on any of the alligators?
  • Alligator Pond
    Play the free strategy game trying to help the ducks cross the alligator hole before the alligator gets them.

Create an Alligator in the River

Alligator River Craft

Alligator River Craft

Create an Alligator Habitat

  • Create an alligator from Self-Hardening Clay.
  • Paint it in shades of alligator green.
  • Arrange a blue Plastic Tablecloth to resemble a river.
  • Add plants and flowers.

As we read and study about alligators we learn more about the alligator's habitat we add more to the river.

  • Which fish live alongside the alligators?
  • Which plants live on the banks of rivers inhabited by alligators?

Use the alligator and river as a fun way to practice jumping over the river.

Alligator Arts and Crafts

Alligator Pillow Boxes

You can print templates to make these Alligator Pillow Boxes by clicking on the image above.

Younger children may need help cutting out and folding these adorable Alligator Pillow Boxes. Invite an older children to come in and pair up with younger ones. This cooperative activity helps the social unity of the school or is a fun way for homeschool families with children of various ages to work together on a project.

Alligator Word Work


Ask the older children to make extras of these alligator boxes for your learning centers. Write the word noun on one alligator box and verb on the other.

Make paper eggs and write words that the children are learning on the eggs. On the back of the eggs you could write the words noun or verb for self checking. The eggs should fit in the alligator box's mouth.

Use cardstock and laminate the alligators and eggs for durability.

The children feed the right eggs to the alligators.

Tell me your most exciting encounters with Alligators or other swamp creatures.

Cynthia Haltom from Diamondhead on May 26, 2013:

Alligator meat is very popular where I live. In fact at one of the gas stations I visit there is a sign that says "Don't feed or play with the gator" During the spring they look for a mate and come out of the swamps and hiss and snap if you aren't careful they could make you into a pie.

Tony Bonura from Tickfaw, Louisiana on November 11, 2012:

I have had alligator meat on several special occasions. I have had it in a stew, bar-b-cued and grilled, and fired, but I have never had alligator pie. Is it anything like crawfish pie? I have had that. No come to think of it gator doesn't taste anything like crawfish.

Was slightly disappointed not to find recipe for aligator pie - but was soon mollified by this wonderful collection of aligator information. I'm rather pleased not to live in a country with aligators, but find them fascinating to read about. How Doth the Little Crocodile is one of my all time favourite poems.

One of my favorite creatures! I could sit and watch them all day. This year we have a couple of small ones 3-4 ft and a bigger 7 ft one nesting near us. You have to watch the little guys, they can be quite aggressive.

I really enjoyed all of the alligator fun here and especially like your Everglades Poem. It is amazing what you see if you just stop and take the time. Thanks!

Sensitive Fern on October 18, 2010:

That photo of the python eating the alligator is amazing! Not quite sure who's who but I like it. And who knew alligators could be such fun?

All your lenses are very thorough!

Kiwisoutback from Massachusetts on April 24, 2009:

I couldn't believe how many of these were around in the Everglades near Alligator Alley. Hundreds of them just off the road. People were stupid (brave? nah, stupid), they'd take their picture right next to them. Not me, I'll pass. I once had grilled farm raised alligator once too.. weird taste. Not what I'd call a delicacy. Great work on this lens!
