When I was a little girl, I loved raccoons.  They seemed so cute and cuddly!  As an adult, I know now that they are quite the opposite - they are actually pretty pesky!  They often get into trash in suburban neighborhoods and carry many diseases. 

As a science teacher, I try to compile activities that are science in nature...not artsy!  I hope these suggestions will help you in your classroom.


    National Geographic Kids has a great website with a video clip, map showing locations and printable fact cards for kids who love to to collect cards.

    Animal Tracking this PDF is a great idea for a science center where you can have students guess which footprint matches which animal.

Raccoon Diagram from Enchanted Learning.  This site has a lot of information, coloring diagrams and crafty ideas.
