Introduction to Animals of the Southern Gulf Islands

A PowerPoint presentation and lesson plan have been produced to introduce many of the common animal species found in the Southern Gulf Islands, and to describe some major differences between birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles. This lesson is presented as a rainy day activity that can foster discussion about animals and what they need to survive and reproduce, and recommended to be used as a pre-fieldtrip lesson before going to the beach or on a hike to observe animals in their natural habitats.
