Zebra Lapbook Lessons
Here are some sample lessons from the Zebras Lapbook:
Zebras can be up to 950 pounds in weight, and are around 4-5 feet tall at the shoulder.
Zebra ears are designed to swivel around in just about all directions to hear any sound around them.
Zebra eyes are on the sides of their heads to help with extended eyesight. They can see not only completely in front, but also see a little to the sides and behind. When zebras graze, they like to stand side by side facing opposite directions so a complete view is covered.
Zebra manes are striped and go down to their neck, with the exception of foals and younger zebras having their mane go all the way down their backs.
Zebra hooves are tougher than the average horse’s hooves, allowing them to easily run on rocky, hard ground.
Zebras use their feet to kick at predators and sometimes other zebras. They mostly use their back feet for fighting since the front feet aren’t as strong.
Zebra teeth are designed especially for chewing grass. The front teeth are sharp and act like scissors for cutting the grass apart, and the tough molars in the back chew the grass down.
Zebras don’t take a bath like you would think. Instead of using water, they roll around in mud. As the mud dries and falls of, it takes dry skin and loose hair with it. The dust leftover from the mud serves as protection against heat, wind, and little bugs.
Zebras live in the wide, flat grasslands of Africa. There’s always plants to eat, but nowhere to hide from predators.
