Lesson 1: Reptiles and Birds
The objective of this first video is to introduce students to the similarities that reptiles and birds have with each other. Also, for them to have an opportunity to see different reptiles up close (including a rosy boa snake, a bearded dragon lizard, and a leg less lizard) as well as different birds from the Retreat (chickens, ducks, and turkeys). At the end of the video, you will also find a tutorial for a craft project related to this lesson.
