"Tigers, Turtles, and Tortoises" Letter of the Week

   Our theme is Tigers, Turtles, and Tortoises this week.  All six remaining species of tigers are endangered.  The Siberian Tiger is the biggest cat in the world.  The Tulsa Zoo has a beautiful family of Malayan Tigers.  There are seven species of sea turtles and all are endangered.  There are over 300 different species of turtles and tortoises. Turtles usually are in or around water and tortoises usually stay on land.  The Tulsa Zoo has many interesting species.  The huge Aldabra Tortoises are some of my favorite.  Our letter is “T”, our word is “cat”, and our number is “20”.
   Please ask your child the following questions. Which cat has stripes?  What class are tigers in?  Are tigers carnivores or herbivores?  What is a baby tiger called?  What class are turtles and tortoises in?  Can they live outside their shell?  Would you rather be a sea turtle or a tortoise on the land?
