Saturday Safari - Animal Fur

On January 29th, we had a wonderful Saturday Safari Adventure! We learned all about fur and how it helps animals survive. We were able to go up to the Education Collection in the museum, there the kids pet animals like the Arctic Fox, Bobcat and the Porcupine. They also had a chance to feel many different kinds of fur. After that, we did a wonderful craft! The kids made up their own animal and the environment that they would be living in, then, with the ever so wonderful items we have in the craft room, they were able to give that animal many different “fur” textures. This Saturday we will be learning about animals without teeth.
