Whatâ€™s Living in the Forest?
Animals are adapted to the conditions found in their particular habitats, so, you will most likely come across dexterous climbers living where there are trees, and skilled swimmers occupying water habitats. Exploring a variety of natural places filled with life is a lot of fun at Zoo Camp!
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
The way animals are, from head to toe, may be very useful in their survival. For example, if you were an egg-eating snake youâ€™d be able to swallow whole an egg bigger than your head! Children will have lots of fun taking a look at very special head, shoulders, knees and toes found in the Animal Kingdom.
This camp day will highlight what supports vertebrate bodies: bones. Of all sizes and shapes, they serve vertebrates well. Through exciting activities using replicas and preserved bones, everyone will be introduced to animal anatomy and will have a better understanding of how animals are built inside.
What do hummingbirds and vultures have in common? Discover the amazing variety of behaviors, colors and shapes displayed in the birdsâ€™ world. Finding out how to help protecting bird species from extinction is part of this fun and feathery camp day.
Letâ€™s explore facts and behaviors of some large and remarkable animals that inhabit our planet. They are enormous reptiles and birds, colossal mammals and impressive insects! You will have a great time identifying some of their unique survival adaptations and learning about the challenges they encounter every day.
