Show 1204 Animals - Vertebrates – Mammals
Today’s category of animals is mammals. These are animals with a backbone. Mammals also have 4 limbs thought they can be arms, legs or even flippers. For today’s show we’re looking at the broad category of mammals. Here are some facts: Female mammals have the ability to produce milk to feed their babies. Mammals have hair or fur that help them adapt to temperature changes. Almost all mammals give birth to live young instead of laying eggs. They breathe though lungs. Mammals are the most intelligent creatures on earth. They learn to adapt to many different climates and living conditions. Some mammals are tame, some are wild, some are very large and some are small. First, we create an interchangeable mammal using clay – you’d be surprised how many animals you can create from a few shapes. Next, get fuzzy with a wired dog or maybe you have another animal in mind? Then, it’s time for more clay. Learn how to create beads that copy the hide or fur of your favorite mammal. Last, it’s a pop up book featuring whales.
