Learning Stages

Explore the wonderful world of animals with your child. 

Take a nature walk that concentrates on animals. Visit a local zoo, natural history museum, or look through magazines and books featuring animals. Help your child make a list of animals he knows or has seen. Divide the lists into two categories: animals that live on land and those that live in water. Invite your child to draw pictures of the different animals.
