KET's Everyday Science is funded in part by Kentucky Power and the American Electric Power Foundation and PNC Bank.
Humans and animals share some common features. We use our eyes to see, our nose to smell and our ears to hear. Animals use those same features to help them survive by finding food and sense danger. A Tail Like This will help children learn more about the features of a few common animals they may see every day.
This resource is part of the KET Everyday Science collection.
Everyday Science: A Tail Like This Interactive (Interactive)
As children begin to understand the structure of their own bodies, they learn how different parts of their bodies as well as their senses help them every day. With our eyes, we can look at the pictures in a book. Our ears help us hear voices and music. Our nose can smell a flower.
Animals have body parts that are similar to those of humans. In looking at the ways in which animals use these unique features to live and survive, children can begin to observe how their own physical attributes work to help them explore and understand the world around them.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
