Vampire bats (and other cool animals)

1st graders are learning about features and behaviors of different animals and how they have adapted to survive. We began with mammals, and learned about the starnosed mole, blue whale, wolf, and now the vampire bat. Next we'll learn about reptiles and are anticipating a visit from Mrs. Dockendorff's bearded dragon lizard, Puff, and a boa constrictor and king snake from a nearby herpetologist (caged).
