Interactive video lesson plan for: 10 Cute Animals With Secretly Scary Behaviors

Activity overview:

We’ve all seen those animals, “Oh my gosh! It’s so cute! I just want to cuddle with it!” Well stop it right now! Remember, that little cutie is a wild animal, so no cuddling. Also, you'll want to make sure it's not one of these ten animals that have some secret defenses.
