Young Learner Science B: Animal Science – Examining Animal Behaviors, Habitats, and Survival Skills
Why do chameleons change colors? Where do Monarch butterflies go when they migrate? Why is it easy to teach a dog tricks, yet so hard to teach a cat new things? How do polar bears care for their young? How do insects walk on water? Why are honey bees so necessary for our world? The world of animals is quite mesmerizing and intriguing!
This Young Learners Center class will delve into animal behaviors, habitats, and survival skills. We will examine predators vs. prey, discuss migration habits, animal communication, protection skills such as camouflage and mimicry, discover how parents care for their young, learn about eating habits, hibernation and discuss why some animals are endangered or on the edge of extinction. This course will be an overview of basic animal science and introductory terms as we explore common and not so common extraordinary animals.
