Fun game about Animal's Home
How do animals know what to do to make a home?
Animals are born with instincts. Also some animal parents teach the young how to build homes.
Choose an animal and do the following
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).
Draw or color a picture of the animal.
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.
Discussion about beaver lodges and directions for building a beaver lodge model with kids.
What you need:
Brown construction paper (for the mud)
String (I used brown string for the sticks)
Blue construction paper (for the water)
Beavers and labels for all the parts (here).
Show your picture and model at your club’s family night.
Have fun showing off your model and picture.
Tell people what you learned about your animal and its home.
