Young learners discover how some animals are uniquely equipped with special adaptations on their heads and on their tails. A matching game using animals at the National Zoo’s Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal lets students explore how fancy heads and tails help animals in their habitats. Storytime (“What do you do with a tail like this?” by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page), reinforces student learning on adaptations. Using the concepts learned during the interactive sessions and story book reading, students craft a headband, mask, and/or tail to wear home.
