Happy New Year! During the month of January we will continue our studies on the animal groups. We will learn about mammals, carnivores (animals that eat other animals), herbivores (animals that eat plants) and omnivores (animals that eat both plants and animals). We will talk about animals with hooves, fur, horns, scales etc. we will learn about animals and their young and animals and their homes. We will also be talking about migration (number or body of animals relocating together) and hibernation (animals spending the winter in a dormant state). We will also discuss why and how animal camouflage (to conceal by use of disguise or coloring that blends in with the surrounding or environment) as well as animals who are predators and scavengers.
