Tails and Tales is a fun 45-Minute Investigation-Themed Adventure. Students ask ‘Whose TAIL is it?’ as they investigate 5 Animal Ambassadors from Around the World. As nature detectives, the students search out clues from the TAIL of each animal and have fun with TALL TALES told throughout their adventure. Each animal investigation segment concludes with a Mystery Question, keeping the audience engaged all while GOING WILD for Learning! Emphasis is placed on Reading Literacy as students learn the Geography, Scientific Terminology, and Natural History of each animal. *** Animal ambassadors also help promote other school themes. Ask about Bullying Prevention, Personal Choices, and Cultural Differences!
