After reading books on squirrels, children can be invited to name red squirrel characteristics as they place picture cards onto the mat.

There are four blackline follow-up printouts available. These can be cut to make a booklet if you wish.

Younger children are invited to color pages or draw characteristics of the red squirrel. Emergent writers are invited to use lined booklet printout sheets to write the characteristics down by answering questions. 

After completing the task volunteers may like to make a small group report about their findings.

In my resource library, you can also download Red Fox Characteristics. Here is a fun activity you may like to try. Lay out characteristics of foxes and squirrels and invite the children to choose and identify animal characteristics these two woodland habitants have in common.
