True or False: Animal Fact Fun-xplosion!

Q: True or False: The world's largest animal could fit three motorcycles on its jaw. A: Your animal lover will tell you the answer once they participate in our highly engaging, super silly, and very factual 30-minute visit.

Your animal and fact-lover and I will use the nonfiction picture books, Book of Bones (a Teachers’ Choice title) and Book of Flight (an Indiana Author Award Finalist), as our jumping off point work our way through clues, fun facts, and Sam Brewster's excellent illustrations to guess which animals have the biggest, smallest, and spikiest bone.

Your young animal-lover will have so much fun showing off their animal smarts that the the only way I'll be able to end the virtual visit is by challenging them to create a guessing game of their own! If you thought you were proud of your kiddo before, just wait until you see what they create after this session.

I can make this program a highly interactive, excellent experience no matter what the size of your group is: one kiddo, a group of 10, or even 30. For super-sized groups, consider a 45-60 minute session.

This visit is perfect for students in grades 2-4 and I also love visiting with students in grades K - 8.
