Wildlife Discovery® Kit: Squirrel

Introduction (from the activity booklet that comes with this kit):

Squirrels are spunky little mammals known for their bushy tails, large eyes, and teeth. Though they only weigh a pound, squirrels might as well be the Olympians of the forest: they can jump up to a height of six feet, leap eight feet from tree to tree, and swim the distance of a mile. With incredibly strong hind legs made for jumping and climbing; large eyes with nearly 360 degree field of vision to locate predators and determine jumping distance; and dexterous hands for manipulating food, squirrels manage very well in a variety of settings from dense forests to city parks and backyards. Squirrels are in the order Rodentia, which includes 1,500 different species of rodents, including rats, chipmunks, prairie dogs, beavers, and porcupines. What sets these animals apart from other mammals is their teeth. Rodents have a single pair of incisors in their upper and lower jaws. They continuously grow and as they do, the back of each incisor wears down and becomes chisel-shaped. To communicate with each other, squirrels rely on their loud chirps and chattering. They use their bushy tails for balance and protection from the weather. Kit contents: squirrel puppet, squirrel rubber stamp, vinyl track replicas, resin cast of squirrel track, book about squirrels, squirrel model, set of squirrel stickers, blackline masters, set of brad fasteners, and a squirrel activity guide.
