a Science Week break thru the New Year

I know we have skipped yet another week, but with Thanksgiving preps and crafting projects, we are working a jumbled schedule around here. I expect this to be true for the majority of December as well, so if you are following along, please plan to catch-up or resume the weeks with us after the New Year.

When we resume, we will learn about:
the fur-bearers and musk gland group
Bears, the kings of the forest lands
whales, dolphins, porpoises and manatees
fin-foots and kelp-dwellers (seals, walruses, and sea otters)
the burrowing life of shrews, moles, pocket gophers, chipmunks, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, marmots and armadillos)
Leafy Treetop dwellers (red tree mouse/red tree heather vole, pinon mouse, golden mouse, southern flying squirrel, red squirrel, gray squirrel, fox squirrel, marten, the fisher)
mammals of the flowing water (northern water shrew, mink, chocolate cottontail, marsh rabbit, muskrat, coypu, river otter, beaver)
desert dwellers (pocket mouse, kangaroo mouse, ord kangaroo rat, collared peccary)
mammals of the barren ground and polar seas (lemmings, arctic ground squirrels, arctic fox, ringed seal, narwhals, white whales, bowheads, musk ox)

We'll see you back here for Science Week lessons beginning on January 7th.
