Welcome to The Good and the Beautiful Mammals
This family-style course is fun and simple to teach!
From the tallest giraffe to the tiniest bumblebee bat, mammals come in all shapes and sizes. Learn how mammals are classified by their characteristics into different kinds or species in this 14-lesson unit.
Find out how nocturnal mammals “see” in the dark using echolocation or how wolves track their prey with their keen sense of smell or how hooved mammals can survive in a dangerous habitat filled with hungry predators.
