Storytelling can be used to teach children about different aspects of life. While some messages are simple and straight, others are intense and cannot be delivered directly. MomJunction brings to you a list of 25 short animal stories that children would love to hear. Tired of the bragging of a speedy hare, a tortoise challenges it to a race. The overconfident hare accepts the competition and runs as fast as it can after the race begins. Meanwhile, the tortoise continues to walk slowly, until it reaches the finish line. The overslept hare wakes up, only to be shocked that a slow moving tortoise beat it in the race. One day, two goats try to cross a weak and narrow bridge across the river. The goats are at either end of the bridge, but neither is ready to make way for the other. They come to the centre of the bridge and begin fighting about who should cross first.

One way would be to use the ideas that Linnaeus had — to start out with broad categories and get narrower. Let's try it! You are going to devise a seven-level system for classifying the things in your house. If you get confused at any time as you are doing this, you can look at the examples listed later in the lesson.

Look here for ideas if you get confused. There is an example of how to break things down into smaller categories, and then there is an example of a scientific classification for an item. So that you don't get stuck trying to copy the example, we've used a school instead of a house for the example. Do you see how the groups get smaller and smaller, ending in a single item? That is what you are trying to do. Here is an example of how one level could be broken down into several smaller categories.

We'll use the level family from above for our example. Notice how each genus is a smaller part of the family of Books. Imagine that you are a biologist studying animals in the wild.

One day, while lying in your viewing spot, you see an animal you have never seen before. You rush back to your tent and look through your encyclopedia of animals, growing more and more excited as you realize that you have discovered a new species! As the discoverer of this new species, you get the honor of naming it. Of course, being a fantastic scientist, you will follow the classification system in place. That means that the only part of the animal's name you will make up yourself is the actual species name.

You go back to the Animal Diversity Web to find the closest animal you can find to the one you discovered.

Classifying Animals

For example, if the animal you have discovered looks a lot like a panther, look up "panther" on the website. So get a clear picture of your animal in your mind. Is it a mammal? This works best if you create an animal that is similar to your favorite animal you chose earlier, but yet slightly different.

Draw a picture of your new animal. List the animal's classification. Remember, its classification should be the same as the animal you found that is almost the same as this one. The only difference will be the species. Look at several other species within the genus so that you can think of something that makes your animal slightly different than any other species in the genus. For example, it could be a different color or eat something different or live on a different continent.

After you have classified your animal, including creating a species name, go back and label your picture with one thing from each level that is unique to that classification. For example, if your animal is in phylum Chordata, draw a line to the animal's backbone and write, "Phylum Chordata — backbone. Look back to the Animal Diversity website you used before to search each of those levels.

It will tell you what characteristics are typical of that classification. You may also use an encyclopedia to help you. Because animals nearly universally interest children, there are myriad books on them geared to young readers.

Included here are a few high-quality volumes that are distinguished due to quality of illustration, comprehensiveness of material, interest to gifted learners or classic nature. The correct classification will depend upon the animal chosen. Use either the Animal Diversity Web or any encyclopedia to verify that the student has chosen the correct classification.

This series of lessons was designed to meet the needs of gifted children for extension beyond the standard curriculum with the greatest ease of use for the educator.

The lessons may be given to the students for individual self-guided work, or they may be taught in a classroom or a home-school setting. Assessment strategies and rubrics are included at the end of each section.

The rubrics often include a column for "scholar points," which are invitations for students to extend their efforts beyond that which is required, incorporating creativity or higher level technical skills.

Learning Objectives After completing the lessons in this unit, students will be able to: Know and understand the seven levels of classification. Apply that knowledge as they practice classifying animals. Evaluate and compare the classification of animals. Devise a classification system for the objects in their homes.

Create a new species and classify it according to the principles of classification. Preparation Print the lesson plan on a color printer. Have access to the Internet for student s. Lesson 1: Beginnings Look at the pictures of these animals, then fill in the chart below: Choose the two animals from your chart that you think are most similar and justify your choice in one sentence: Lesson 2: Organizing the animals — how it happened Back in the 18th century, a Swedish man named Carolus Linnaeus thought it was important to organize living things, and he developed a system to do just that.

Linnaeus's system has seven levels: Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family Genus Species Every animal on the planet, down to the most microscopic creature you can imagine, can be classified according to this system.

The animal kingdom called Kingdom Animalia is just one of those. Originally, Linnaeus only identified two kingdoms: Some scientists think that viruses should have their own kingdom, but currently they are not included under this system. Charlotte's Web.

It hunts insects, spiders including tarantulas , lizards, frogs, snakes and even small mammals. The centipede injects its prey with paralyzing venom. There are 4 species of anteater; the animal above is a giant anteater. Click on the image to visit our anteater facts page. The Arrau turtle is also known as the South American river turtle.

It is a large freshwater turtle found in rivers throughout much of northern South America. The species is present in both the site and the Orinoco rivers. Full-grown adults have carapace shell lengths of over 1 m 3. Side-necked turtles Pleurodira tuck their heads into their shells with a sideways motion. Members of the other main group of turtles, Cryptodira, pull their heads straight back into their shells.

It uses its elongated middle finger for tapping on trees and plucking grubs out from under the bark. The aye-aye is a species of lemur found in the rainforests of Madagascar an island country off the east coast of Africa. The aye-aye eats grubs insect larvae , which it finds by tapping on trees with its fingers. By listening carefully to the noise produced by the tapping, it can tell if a grub is hidden under the bark. Members of this family are known as viverrids. The binturong is the only Old World mammal with a prehensile tail.

Blue morphos are brilliant blue butterflies. The name is used for any blue butterfly in the genus morpho. A genus is a group of closely related species. Blue morphos feed among other things on rotting fruit , which they find on the floor of rainforests in South and Central America. Sometimes there are so many blue morphos flying over the rainforest canopy that pilots can see the blue of their wings from the sky!

Boa Constrictor: The boa constrictor is a large rainforest snake. The boa constrictor is a member of the family Boidae , a group of large, non-venomous snakes that also contains the green anaconda see further down the page. There are six species of caiman. The spectacled caiman , one of the most common species of caiman, gets its name from the bony ridge on its nose, which makes the reptile appear to be wearing glasses.

The candiru is a small fish found in the site River and several other South American rivers and their tributaries. It has a long, thin, translucent body. Small spines are present on its gill covers. These rainforest fish feed on the blood of larger fish by attaching themselves to their gills.

It is even rumored that the candiru can enter a human body. However, this is unproven and unlikely. It lives South and Central American forests. The capybara has several adaptations for a semi-aquatic lifestyle. It can remain submerged for up to five minutes — a useful skill to have for an animal commonly hunted by jaguars and ocelots! Civets are cat-like mammals found in rainforests in Asia and Africa. They produce a strong-smelling substance that is used to make perfume although most perfume manufacturers are now switching to synthetic alternatives.

Like binturongs see further up the page , most civets are members of the Viverridae family. The African palm civet , a civet found in the rainforests of Africa, is in the family Nandiniidae. Civits are mammals in the group Carnivora. This group is split into two branches; Feliforma the cat-like carnivorans and Caniformia the dog-like carnivorans. Civits, along with animals such as cats and hyenas, are placed in Feliforma.

South American coati Nasua nasua , a species found in the site Rainforest. These cat-sized carnivorous mammals are members of the raccoon family, Procyonidae.

Rainforest Animals List With Pictures, Facts & Links to Further Information

Coatis forage on the forest floor by day. They find food among the leaf litter using their acute sense of smell. During the night they rest in the rainforest canopy.

Electric eel. Click photo for more information on this animal. Despite its name and eel-like appearance, the electric eel is a knifefish rather than a true eel.

This long, thin fish has a fin running almost the whole length of the underside of its body. By moving this fin with a wave-like motion the electric eel is able to swim both forwards and backwards. Like other knifefish, the electric eel is able to produce electrical fields that help it navigate in murky water. However, the electric eel has greatly developed this ability, and is able to produce electrical fields strong enough to stun prey and deter predators.

Male giraffe weevil. This strange-looking rainforest bug is found in the island country of Madagascar. This is an adaptation for fighting and nest-building. The neck of the male is over twice as long as that of the female, giving the insect a total body length of almost 1 in. In their adult form they are over 10 cm 3. Their larvae weigh up to grams 3. Goliath bird eater spider. The goliath birdeater is a member of the tarantula family Theraphosidae. This huge rainforest spider is the largest and heaviest spider in the world although its leg-span, at 11 inches 28 cm is only the second largest, after the giant huntsman spider.

Its body reaches lengths of 4. The Goliath birdeater lives deep in the rainforests of northern South America, including the site rainforest. It hunts at night, preying on a variety of animals including large invertebrates and small vertebrates, including lizards and frogs.

Despite its name, the species only rarely eats birds. However, a green anaconda can still grow to over 5 metres in length! This huge rainforest snake is an excellent swimmer , and is found in the lakes and rivers of the site Rainforest. Like all members of the family Boidae , the green anaconda is non-venomous. Instead, it relies on its squeezing ability to subdue its prey.

The green iguana is a large lizard that lives in the forests of Central and South America. Although it looks fierce, it mainly eats plants. The species is arboreal tree-dwelling. It is often found near water, and is an excellent swimmer.

The closely-related Lesser Antillean iguana , a species found in the rainforests of the Lesser Antilles islands in the Caribbean, is critically endangered.

The harpy eagle is the biggest eagle of the Americas. It is capable of plucking mid-sized mammals such as monkeys and sloths from out of trees. The hoatzin is a pheasant-shaped bird with a long body, broad tail, and a spiky crest on its head. The hoatzin is an unusual bird for several reasons. The species nests above water, and if threatened, the juveniles drop into the water.

Using their claws, they are able to climb back into the nest once the danger has passed. The species also has an unusual way of digesting its food, which consists largely of green leaves.

No list of rainforest animals would be complete without a howler monkey!
