Learning about Ohio animals


Jacob Pike, son of Travis Pike and Camille Ike, shows off the skull of a woodpecker when Brunkner Nature Center recently visited Sidney Middle School. Did you know Ohio biologists believe the nocturnal flying squirrel is perhaps more common in Ohio than the gray squirrel? Students in Frank Hall’s fifth-grade science classes learned this fact and many more during a talk about Ohio animals. Students were able to feel the pelts of common Ohio mammals including a raccoon, coyote, fox squirrel and bobcat. They also used a dichotomous key to study the features of animal skulls and determine which animal skull they had. Brunkner also shared some live animals including a possum and a flying squirrel. Students also participated in activities comparing themselves to the little brown bat.
