Grace's Expert Nocturnal Presentation

Grace has been studying nocturnal animals in her class and each child had to pick a nocturnal animal to research, make a model of and write a report on. Grace chose the koala bear. She did most of her research at school. We made the koala bear out of craft wire and felt and it turned out really cute! Grace even sewed it together. I would get the needle and thread started for her and start the stitches and then she would finish it. She did a great job!

Grace giving her report to my friend, Wendi.

Here is her report which she also typed by herself. I just cleaned it up a little bit after she was done.

The koala is up to 2-3 feet long.

Koalas live in eucalyptus trees in Australia.

They spend most of their time high up in tall trees.

They come from their mother’s body.

Koalas are mammals.

Koalas eat eucalyptus leaves. Koalas are herbivores.

Their fur protects them from cold weather and rain.

Koalas do not have any enemies because they spend all of their time high up
in the trees eating and sleeping.

The koalas have sharp claws to climb trees without falling.

Koalas weigh up to 10-30 pounds and have a lifespan of 13-18 years.
