Today we learned all about mammals! We discussed the characteristics of mammals–body hair, ability to regulate their own body temperature, give live birth.
Learning the differences between carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores
We then learned about camouflage, so we acted like birds looking for worms (bits of string). We quickly learned it was easier to find the bright colors instead of browns and yellows 🙂
We finished the day by discussing habitats and learning what basic needs animals have in order to survive.
Everyone was given an animal to build a habitat for… this varied from monkeys to iguanas to toucans!
Lots of fun with skulls and habitats! Tomorrow is all about birds!
