LESSON 4 – ANIMAL COATS
Background: Body coverings are important as they keep the animal warm and dry, protect them from physical danger and help them hide from their enemies.
Observe and describe many types of animals.
Quick Peek: By deciding how animal coverings are alike and different, the students compare – just like a scientist!
1. Set up
four stations equipped with magnifying glasses and animal coverings (be
sure to have samples of feathers, fur, scales and skin).
