Ducks Lapbook Lessons
Here are some sample lessons from the Ducks Lapbook:
Dabbling Ducks vs. Diving Ducks
Dabbling Ducks like to live in shallow waters, rising quickly when they take off. Their food is close to the surface of the water, and their diet is made up of water plants, seeds, insects, worms, and snails.
Diving Ducks are known for their diving abilities, going down as far as 25 feet to grab their food, which consists of water plants, fish, clams, and snails. They float in the water lower than Dabbling Ducks and also have smaller wings, so in order to take off for flight, they run on the water to gain speed.
Duck predators include racoons, hawks, foxes, and snapping turtles.
