Les mammifères du Maine

Last Tuesday we had the chance to participate in a presentation from CHEWONKI.
When we came into the community hall, there were big red boxes installed on tables.
After some explanations, we removed the red covers and discovered stuffed animals. We saw different mammals from Maine.

We tried to sort these animals according to their diet, their fur, the way they move, thanks to cards showing the details of their anatomy.
At the end of the presentation we were allowed to touch the furs, jaws, feet, etc. We also saw a live opossum!

We will use all this information to write our stories (stories of origins) on the animals of Maine.
