►This site was originally created for my kids and their cousins, because we did science together. We eventually added more friends and I ended up having science classes for five years. I am no longer adding to the site (since 2014), but will leave it up for others' use. I do post to facebook occasionally if I come across something to share. =)

►Please accept my apology for any broken links or videos that do not work. I am always disappointed when people take down their videos from YouTube. It makes it hard to find just the right replacement. And because the videos were posted years ago, I usually have no recollection of what the video was about.
I kept thinking I would have time after my kids graduated, but life has filled up my free time with new responsibilities. =)

►Please do not email, asking me to post your website link, or to review something to put on my site. Any resources posted on this site are things I had found on my own during my regular searching for material I needed at the time, and liked it well enough to post here. There have never been any affiliates on my site, and as it is no longer active, would not be worthwhile at this point. ;)
Thank you!

Biology 101, Chapter 5a: The 6th Day-Land Animals part 1 {warm-blooded land vertebrates}

Warm-blooded land vertebrates - mammals!
Thankfully this is a fairly simple chapter since we've just had a wedding January 4!  =)  I have been super busy for the past several weeks!  But it was beautiful and so sweet. =)

I don't have any experiments or class activities, so we will not have class. Therefore I have no extra links to post here.
I did give a few extra assignments.
•Write about one unusual mammal.
•Google to find out how many body systems there are.  List them along with a short description and the basic organs they include.
•Write a couple of sentences telling what the difference is between a body organ and a body system.
Draw and label the basic body organs.

(1) Baby Kangaroo being born

(2) Kangaroos Boxing

(3) The Sloth

(4) Triumph of the Herbivores
Footage of herbivore mammals out-maneuvering their carnivore predators.

(5) Aggressive Nightlife of the Kangaroo Rat
Watch when a snake comes to pay a visit...

(6) Beaver Lodge Construction
The God-given instincts of beavers are amazing!

(7) The Siberian Tiger

(8) Raccoons

(9) Flying Squirrels

(10) Shifak, or Sifaka, (one species of lemur)

(11) Monkey Insect Repellent
Piper leaves have insect repellent properties and protect these monkeys from mosquitoes.

(12) Monkey Alert!
Amazing how different types of monkeys have distinct calls to warn their troop members of an invading big cat predator, and that the different species of monkeys recognize the warnings from the other monkeys. AND that there are different warning calls for each different predator!
