Lesson Excerpt

Animals come in all different shapes and sizes.  Giraffes are tall with long necks.  Polar bears are white from head to toe.  Leopards have spots.  Animals use their special colors and body parts to help them stay alive, or survive.  All animals need food, air and water.  They also need to be able to protect themselves from predators, or animals that want to eat them.  Animals all over the world have unique, or special, bodies that help them live in their environment.


Animals eat different things.  A giraffe eats leaves from trees.  Its long neck helps it to reach to the high trees and grab leaves from the very top.  A giraffe's teeth also are flat for grinding up the leaves it eats. Sharks eat animals in the ocean like fish and even other sharks.  Most sharks have very sharp teeth.  Sharp, pointy teeth help sharks to eat the meat of fish and other sharks.  The Great White Shark has almost three thousand teeth!  Birds usually eat bugs or worms.  A bird's beak is pointed, and the bird uses it to grab the little bugs from small spaces in trees or holes in the ground.
