Mazzy was assigned an animal project a few weeks ago. She had to pick an animal, write a report, and create a habitat for it. She picked the Naked Mole Rat.
We made a plan for the habitat and gathered supplies for it. Here we have a shoebox and green flower foam.
We glued the flower foam in the shoebox, then carved away bits of the foam to make a sideways view of an underground tunnel.
Then she covered the foam with dirt colored Model Magic. We covered the outside of the box with brown craft paper. She rolled roots from lighter colored Model Magic. Then she formed a mole rat from air dry clay.
And we're finally done!
Here's a closeup photo. Maz and I are quite proud of our hard work. And we could probably tell you everything you want to know about naked mole rats.
