Mother Nature makes room for some wild and wacky animals—that kids will love learning about. This independent activity packet highlights some of the earth's strangest animals and their odd behavior.
While reading about baby geese that adopt non-goose parents, lungfish that live up to four years in hard-baked mud, and birds that collaborate on community housing, among others, children will have even more fun completing a variety of activities, including:
• finding differences between similar objects
• solving riddles
• a decoding puzzle
• a word search
• a maze
In the process, children will improve reading comprehension skills and also build science concepts and vocabulary.
Specific standards links are noted for each activity.
