The Animal Kingdom {A Linc-dog Presentation}

The Animal Kingdom {A Presentation from the Prez} | Sassafras ScienceAhh, the animal kingdom.

If you haven’t yet finished volume one, you don’t know that at the end of each journey, the Prez recaps what we learned before we start the next leg. Even so, today, Blaine and I asked President Lincoln to come and share with you the presentation he made for us after the zoology leg of our journey.

He almost said no.

It turns out he had used the original tape to make Uncle Cecil’s Sassercise video. But, we are in luck because he also had another copy of the movie on his hard drive!

So, President Lincoln, the prairie dog extraordinaire, is guest posting today with his video about the animal kingdom. (<-Can’t believe I just typed that sentence! Seriously, a prairie dog is sharing on our blog – what could possibly happen next?)

The Animal Kingdom

Hello, Sassafras Fans.

I am President Lincoln, lab assistant to Uncle Cecil.

I keep the lab running and keep track of what the twins have learned.

I know you think this is not possible, but if you don’t believe me, have breakfast at Cecil’s one morning. You will change your mind.

The twins asked me to share the video I made to re-cap their zoology leg.

Here it is:

A Final thought from the Twins

Well, thanks, Linc-dog. You are a man…I mean an animal…of few words.

For those of you who couldn’t view the presentation, here’s what it was all about:

The Six Types of Animals Studied

  1. Mammals — These are warm-blooded animals. They feed their young milk and are covered with fur
  2. Birds — These are warm-blooded animals that lay eggs. They have feathers and wings.
  3. Reptiles— These are cold-blooded animals that lay eggs. They are covered with scales.
  4. Amphibians — These are cold-blooded animals that live on land and in the water. They have soft skin.
  5. Fish — These are cold-blooded animals that live in water. They are covered with scales and breathe through gills.
  6. Invertebrates — These are animals with no backbone, such as bees, spiders, and squids.

The Three Types of Animal Diet

  1. Carnivore— These animals are otherwise known as a meat-eater.
  2. Herbivore — These animals are otherwise known as a plant-eater.
  3. Omnivore — These animals are otherwise known as a both-eater. These animals feed on both plants and animals.

Thanks for reading!
