Saturday Safari - Biggest & Smallest Animals

On February 19th, we spent Saturday Safari learning about the biggest and smallest animals. Did you know that the coconut crab grows up to be three feet long, with legs that are three feet long as well? We learned about elephants, squids, and tarantulas, with a special visit from our very own tarantula MJ. Our craft was very fun. We had paper plates, and the kids were able to make their paper plate look like an animal that they learned about. There were some very creative art projects. This Saturday we will be learning about Sneaky Animals and Their Defenses. It will be a blast!
