NHSA and Zoo in the Classroom with Small Mammals
Join NHSA in the Classroom for a virtual field trip to the Smithsonian National Zoo’s Small Mammal program! In case you missed our adventure back in October, you can now watch it on-demand. Put on your explorer hat and use this scavenger hunt to make sure you don’t miss any exciting, unexpected moments.
Keep the learning going! Check out the Smithsonian’s fun lessons about another small mammal: naked mole rats. Designed to support Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework (ELOF) standards, this collection of activities, videos, read-aloud ideas, and conversation starters to engage children in learning—connected by the story The Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems.
Did that Just Happen?
Live performances are full of unexpected moments and we got them all on video! Use the Scavenger Hunt and watch for Manny the Tamandua’s near-miss, Sherman the Armadillo’s big leap, and lots of other fun surprises.
More Mammals, Please!
