Straw, wood or brick?
The big, bad wolf can always try blowing, but animals are ahead of the game! They are protected behind their shell, armour, lodge, nest, hive and hole. Placing animal figurines on the right country, associating an animal’s card with its home, browsing through our collection of books, drawing your favorite animal and handling real-life specimens of animal homes (hive, bee’s nest, shells, beaver lodge and nests) are among the fun and exciting experiments that we offer your biologists! The great architects had better watch out! Lots of competition ahead!
