My name is Sofia.
I live in a house.
I sleep in a bed.
When I’m hungry, I get snacks from the kitchen.
But I wonder…
Where do animals live?
Where do animals sleep?
Where do animals get their snacks?
Let’s go for a walk.
Maybe we can find out where animals live.
Look up in that tree.
Do you see that clump of twigs and leaves?
It’s not a bird’s nest.
It’s too messy for a bird.
It’s up so high.
The animal that lives there must be good at climbing.
Do you see any clues about what lives here?
Animals get hungry, just like you and me.
I think the animal who lives here eats…
Stop & Talk
I think I’ll watch that clump of leaves for a while.
Maybe I’ll see the animal that lives up there.
A squirrel just ran up the tree and hurried home.
That clump of leaves is a squirrel nest.
Can you find the squirrel?
The squirrel is good at climbing.
When dogs chase it, it runs up the tree.
Dogs can’t climb trees.
The squirrel is safe in its nest up high in the tree.
Up there, it has lots of acorns to eat.
I think it would be fun to be a squirrel.
Let’s try it!
Get Up & Move: Stand up and pretend to nibble on an acorn, just like a squirrel.
Now, curl up like a squirrel in its nest, full of acorns and safe from dogs.
It’s getting late and it’s time to go home.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll go for a walk in the woods again.
I wonder what other animal homes I will find.
