Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Mammals topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Mystery Mammal

Play a game of Twenty Questions focusing on mammals. Begin by thinking of a mammal your child is familiar with. Invite him or her to ask you questions about the mammal that you can answer with a simple yes or no. Your child should keep asking questions until he or she is able to figure out the mystery mammal. Then have you your child think of a mystery mammal so you can ask the questions.

A Trip to the Zoo or Farm

Take a trip to a local zoo or farm with your child. As you explore, have your child take photos of the mammals you see. Encourage him or her to explain why the animal is a mammal. Then have your child create a list or a photo montage of the mammals. Be sure your child includes facts about each mammal. If you don’t live near a zoo or farm, you can visit a local library and explore materials that feature mammals.
