Animal Armor


The theme of this class was how do animals protect themselves.   We looked at some photos of armored animals.   We talked about knights in shining armor and read a cute story about a maiden that wanted to be a knight more than anything. It was a cute story of encouragement for our little girls to follow their dreams.  Apparently it is very popular and even has a tv show based upon the series.  Anyhow it has a very good message for little girls.

We had a visit in class from our little armored one, the armadillo.


We wrapped up this fun class by making armadillo skin shields
