Squirrels!!! Why Are You Digging In My Lawn?

Along with the birds returning my yard, the squirrels and chipmunks are starting to dig around in my lawn. The same thing might be happening in your students' yards too. SciShow Kids has a new video that explains why squirrels are dormant for much of the winter and why they dig in the spring and fall. The video features a "squirrel cam" and a "squirrel pen pal" for the show's co-host, Squeaks.


After watching they watch the video consider having your students visit Project Squirrel to learn more about the various types of squirrels and where they live around the world.
