What can be done with this information?
I hope you find the info I’ve offered above and in the videos below helpful for learning about and having fun with reindeer. I’d like to offer a few more suggestions on how the information can be used and what you can do to have a real-life experience with a reindeer.
Make a Reindeer Book, Diorama, a 3-D Model or a Drawing – Make a shape book, lapbook, or any kind of book that contains the information that you and/or your family find the most interesting about reindeer. Add pictures of any experiences you may have and drawings that have been made as well. Consider creating a diorama featuring the information you learned or a 3-D model of a caribou.
Visit a Place that has Reindeer – Some zoos or churches bring in reindeer to celebrate the winter season. If you get the chance, go and visit one. You may be able to touch one! If you are lucky enough to live in an area that’s home to these beautiful creatures, see if you can observe them, at a safe distance, in the wild.
