List of the Live Animal Cams to Explore:

  1. Look at all of the live Animal Cams.
  2. Pick one animal to observe. Notice the colour of the animal.
  3. Think about these questions:  How does the animal move? What do you think the animal eats? What do you think the animal needs in order to survive?
  4. Once you have thought of these questions I want you to draw the animal on a blank piece of paper. Please use realistic colours (e.g. the penguin is black and white, not pink and blue).

Take a picture of you work!
