This week our Animal Activity Packet is all about REPTILES! You’ll find a fun snake craft and some other slithery activities. Our first Tales in the Parks program included 2 books about animals in AFRICA!
We hope these links will help you explore these topics even further!
- Here’s a short video from PBS Kids that explains what reptiles are!
- Watch this clip from Wild Kratts as they look at a Diamondback rattlesnake.
- Wisconsin is home to 37 species of reptiles! You can print off a checklist of Wisconsin reptiles and amphibians. How many have you seen?
- Find more information about all of WIsconsins “herps” on this WIsconsin DNR site.
- One of our stories at the park was about a cheetah. Watch this clip from PBS Kids to see a cheetah in action!
- Our library recently won a mini-grant from the UW-Madison African Studies Department. This Read Africa grant allowed us to purchase some books for our library. Many are award winners from this list – Children’s Africana Book Awards.
