National Geographic Education has a fun puppet building activity that I recently Stumbled Upon. Build a Meerkat is a lesson designed for students in pre-K through grade 4. In the lesson students create a meerkat puppet using the templates and directions provided by National Geographic. The point of the lesson is to get students to analyze how a meerkat’s body is adapted to its habitat.
Applications for Education
The concept behind Build a Meerkat could be applied to a lot of other animals as well as to plants.
