Beaver Lapbook Information

Here are some sample lessons from the Beaver Lapbook:

Beaver Diet
Beavers eat bark, twigs, leaves, roots, and water plants.

Beaver Anatomy

The Tail: It is wide, flat, and scaly. The beaver’s tail helps with swimming and balancing when the beaver cuts down trees. Beaver tails were once eaten by Native Americans and European explorers as a delicacy (special food).

Castor: Beavers have a gland called a castor at the end of the tail that secretes a musk used to keep their fur waterproof.

Teeth: Beaver teeth are used for gnawing, and they become sharper as they are used. A beaver’s teeth are always growing!

Webbed Toes: This beaver feature makes the beaver a powerful swimmer.
