take care of it until you found its family. What would the animal be? What
would you have to do to take care of it? Would you enjoy being an animal
parent? Why or why not?

this is a good process for picking someone to spend your life with? Why or why
not? If you were a bird, would you add any other things to look for? Why or why
How do you think humans would be different if they had to lay eggs during the
spring and sit on them until they hatched? Would your parents take turns on the
eggs? Would you have to sit on the egg of a baby brother or sister? Why or why
The many migrating birds that left during the fall and winter return home
during the spring to find mates and have babies. Why do you think the birds
don't just stay in one warm place? What might be some reasons they feel the
need to travel hundreds or thousands of miles twice a year?
Hibernating animals like hedgehogs, bats, bears, and squirrels begin to wake up
from their long slumber during the spring. How do you feel after you've taken a
long nap? What might you need to do to completely wake up? How would that
compare to a hibernating bear and why?
Even though they're cute, rabbits can wreak havoc on your backyard garden as
they look for food to eat. Imagine that you have been hired as the guard of
your parents’ garden. What would you do to scare the rabbits away from your
parents' carrots? Would you be successful? Why or why not?
Monarch butterflies take part in a wild yearlong journey including a move from
Mexico to Texas and Florida at the beginning of the summer to lay eggs on the
milkweed plant, the only plant monarch caterpillars can eat. What would happen
to these butterflies if the milkweed went extinct and why?
After the trip to Mexico and the southwestern United States, these butterflies
can go as far north as Canada during the spring and summer before the cycle
continues. What would it be like to be one of these globetrotting butterflies?
Would you enjoy all the traveling? Why or why not?
Upon noticing hundreds of salamanders trying to cross a nearby street to get to
a spring mating pond, you and your friends decide to build a tunnel to keep the
amphibians safe. How do you get this tunnel approved? What do you use to create
the tunnel? What is the end result and why? 820. While mating seasons occur during the
spring in most areas, animals in tropical climates don't stick to one
particular time of year. Why do you think that is? What would you do
differently than you do now if you lived on a tropical island and why? Written by Bryan Cohen
