What is a home[edit]

A family home in the United States

A home is the place where one lives permanently.

Tell about your home. Draw a picture of your house and color it.[edit]

Animals have homes too. Name five different animals and tell where they live[edit]

How do animals know what to do to make a home?[edit]

Animals are born with instincts. Also some animal parents teach the young how to build homes.

Choose an animal and do the following:[edit]

Since this is the Eager Beaver program, the beaver is a logical choice. Beavers build homes that are enclosed, much like ours. Most animals just use naturally occurring features as homes. It is a simple matter to build or draw a beaver lodge.

Watch the animal (it can be in a zoo or on a video).[edit]

Here is a live feed of a beaver lodge and a BBC video about beavers and another one.

Draw or color a picture of the animal.[edit]

There are plenty of beaver drawings ready to color on the internet. Just do an image search and print out one you like.

Make a model of its home.[edit]

Discussion about beaver lodges and directions for building a beaver lodge model with kids.

Show your picture and model at your club’s family night.[edit]

Have fun showing off your model and picture.

Tell people what you learned about your animal and its home.[edit]

These is where the children learn by repeating back what they learned. This is a good resource on beaver lodges.
