Summer Science for Kids, Child plays with dog to study animals

Investigate Your Pets


Your furry friends can help provide mini zoology lessons. Ask your child which wild animals are similar to dogs, cats, and other domesticated animals your family has or knows. Discuss how animals have evolved and adapted to their environment. Ask your younger child to describe how a dog looks and acts similar to a wolf. Quiz your older child on what class of animal various pets are (mammal, reptile, amphibian, etc.), how they are born, and what they need to survive.
