Fur In Schools

Picture 1 – 4th grade – learning about furbearers that visit or utilize wetlands. They made comparisons and tried to guess what each fur was.
Picture 2 – 4th grade – also learning about wetlands and furbearers, but they first felt the furs, made a guess at animals, then they got to see the fur, make more observations. Talked some also about animal fur and how it differs in winter and tracking.
Picture 3 – 2nd grade – importance of natural predators, like coyotes.
Picture 4 – 2nd grade – talked about habitats of ND and which animals live in each.
Picture 5 – Another 4th grade - learning about furbearers that visit or utilize wetlands. They made comparisons and tried to guess what each fur was.
Picture 6-10 – K – read two books on fox and skunk, shared furs, then the kids made a Venn diagram finding similarities and differences between the animals.
I try to incorporate the furs whenever possible when I do sessions in the school. For instance, next month I plan on using them during a preschool story time session at the public library. Thank you so much for the opportunity to share these with the local students.

The pictures were taken by a woman who borrowed some furs from NDFTA and went around to local schools.
