Hey! Have You Heard about Herds? Science Safari.
Sheldon, Louisa; And Others
This is the second program in the Science Safari series produced by the Fairfax Network of the Fairfax County Public Schools. The series and the accompanying print materials are designed to show students a broad spectrum of animal life, introduce students to a variety of people who work with animals, and help students become aware of the important role they play in the future of the animal kingdom. The activities in this program are designed to introduce students to the wide range of herd animals, and enable them to learn about what herd animals have in common with each other, the characteristics of herd behavior, and the fascinating and often complicated research that the National Zoo is conducting in order to preserve some of the world's most beautiful and threatened animals. A list of resources is included. (JRH)
