Whenever you are talking about animasl, see if you can find a live webcam for it! The children in our class asked about Eagles, and the next day they were given the chance to watch a Bald Eagle sit on her nest of two eggs at a local zoo via a webcam. You could do this just for fun, or take it a step further and color a picture of what you see. Check back again each week to see if anything has changed. Have the children observe, make predictions and draw pictures. Gather it all into a journal. This is an easy way to study animals in our environment.
