Observe animals in their natural habitats with these fun and easy animal activities for kids. Your kids will learn that animals come in all sizes, from giant whales to tiny mice. Insects, worms, spiders, and other creepy-crawlies -- they're animals, too.
Remember that wild mammals are very shy and come out mostly at dawn or dusk. If your family wants to see them in the wild, you must be quiet and very, very patient.
If you're not that patient, you can watch mammals in the zoo or learn from your own pets!
