Animal Armor

Standard

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.
