Learners will become informed about many weird animal behaviors, and will understand the reasons behind these behaviors.  As strange as an animal behavior may seem, it always serves a purpose, and it is usually essential to their very survival!

Your child will be able to teach YOU about what they have learned, and will have a number of myth busters to try out on you as well!
