On October 8, 2014, Mrs. Fairchild’s and Mr. Woodall’s fourth grade classes were being taught about animals and science. Mrs. Betty Lewis, the conservation educator with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, was showing us both real and model parts of real animals. We saw an owl egg, duck feet, hawk feet, and eagle feet. (We soar like eagles, but these were the parts of eagles! Scary!) The point of the lesson was to teach us how animal’s body parts help them survive. These are called adaptations. For example, we learned that the opossum is the most vicious, because these animals get aggravated. Also these animals have killer teeth. This is just part of what we learned about animals and science.
