Did you know that we share our homes and yards with many creatures…other than your little brother? From tiny spiders to foxes, creatures live all around us, even if we can’t always see them. Sometimes we just have to use our sleuthing skills to find the evidence.
Can you spy any of these signs of wildlife?
-A nibbled leaf
-A shed exoskeleton
-Animal tracks in the snow, dirt or sand
-A burrow entrance
And now, try to spy the things a creatures needs to survive:
-Nuts, seeds and berries
-Pollen for bees
-Tall grasses, brush and trees to hide and nest in
-A source of water
With the evidence you find, can you make up a story about one specific creature’s day?
