Product Description

What does "warm blooded" mean? How do mice and squirrels keep their teeth from growing too long? Which mammals are the fastest runners? What is a mammal anyway?

In this course, the student gets to choose from 12 practical projects about real mammals, such as visiting a farm or a zoo or an animal doctor. He finds out how foxes and wolves live, and learns about deer and otters and many other wild mammals,as well as about domestic mammals.

The course interests and familiarizes young students with the different kinds of mammals.
