Baby Animals by Matt, Danny and Kyndal Grade Level:
Baby animals are cute, whether they are furry or feathered. Matt, Danny, and Kyndal love animals and love to visit the zoo. Which grows fastest: a chick, a calf, or a piglet? Each of the kids had a different hypothesis. Each animal was weighed every few days for a month. The calf gained the most weight in the first month after it was born, but the chick multiplied its weight the most. They created a growth rate chart for the three baby animals.

The Animal Kingdom Grade Level:
The members of Kingdom Animalia are multicellular and eukaryotic like plants and fungi.

Most reproduce sexually and respond quickly to external stimuli. They have nerves and muscles or contractive tissues. Animal cells don't have cell walls. The animal kingdom is diverse, but all animals share some characteristics.

What is an Animal? Grade Level:
Did you know that an insect is considered an animal? With that in mind, how many animal species do you think inhabit the earth? Scientists estimate that number around 9 or 10 million! Animals can weigh from a range of a microscopic few cells to many tons like the giant squid or blue whale and anything in-between. The largest species of animals are insects, and the humans? group, known as the vertebrates, is fairly small in comparison. Animalia is the Kingdom name, and animals differ from plants in that they (animals) lack the rigid cell walls that plants have.

The Animals that Helped Win World War I Grade Level:
Rags was a stray dog turned soldier in World War I. He served with the men of the First Division American Expeditionary Forces, and lived to 1936. Would you believe there were millions of dogs, horses, and other animals that served in the war? They were called "military mascots." Some carried messages between units; others pulled munitions. They lived short lives, and received little recognition. An archivist, Kristin DeAnfrasio, became interested in the animals when she saw so many in pictures from World War I. Citizens would donate their pets to the cause as a patriotic gesture. Rags was buried in Maryland with military honors.
