Animalriffic Word Safari

Is your favorite animal hiding in your favorite words? Find out when you go on an animalriffic word safari.

What You'll Need:

Pen

Have you ever thought about how often your favorite animal is mentioned in another, often unrelated word?

Take the ant, for instance. You find it in anticipation, antiperspirant, tyrant, and thousands of other words. Now pick your favorite animal (simple animal names such as 'dog,' 'cat,' 'bug,' etc., work best), and see what you can come up with.

Illustrate your 'animalriffic' words for an extra dose of fun!
