What Makes an Animal:

This exciting program begins by looking at what all animals have in common. Your students will learn why a frog is an animal, but a tree is not. We’ll discuss the fact that all animals move (at least at one point in their life), all animals have sensory organs, all animals eat, and all animals have babies. 

Next, we’ll look at four of the major taxa of animal life: mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. For each of these groups, we’ll talk about what they all have in common. We’ll learn about warm-blooded vs cold-blooded, live birth vs laying eggs, hair vs feathers vs scales vs skin, and more. All of these topics are designed for the youngest of learners! 

Your students will see a lot of fun animal biofacts during your virtual field trip! Request a program today to learn more!
