Seeing All that We Can See

It has been wonderful to see so many animals on our trip.  I saw eagles flying.  I saw horses running.  I saw bears eating berries.  I saw sea stars and bison and moose.  Just look at the photos in our last post!

When I think of all the animals that I have seen, it helps me to remember how important my eyes are to me.  We need to take special care of our eyes.  We need to be safe when we play sports.  We also need to have our eyes checked every year by a doctor.

The Animals We Have Seen!

We are still on our trip to Alaska and Canada.  Soon we will head for home.  It has been so much fun!

Some of the animals that we have seen are very special.  They are called endangered animals.  When an animal is endangered, it means that there are only a few of them left in the wild.  Bald eagles, grizzly bears, and wood bison are all endangered animals.

If you would like to learn more about endangered animals, we found some fun activity books for you!  Just click here to download them:
