Nature Journaling Lesson 6

Mammals are a specific type of animal. There are more than 6,500 kinds of mammals, but there are a few traits that ALL mammals have in common. All mammals have hair or fur, are warm-blooded, and make milk for their young. We are mammals! Mammals are secretive and can be difficult to spot, but they leave signs that help us to know that they are there. 

These signs include scat (wild animal waste), tracks, sounds, smells, and fur. What mammal signs can you find in your backyard? Will you be lucky enough to spot a mammal? To help identify the mammal signs that you find, please watch this video!
