Featured Activity Kit: World of Animals

How can I tell whether I’ve seen a shark or a whale? What is the most poisonous snake in the world? What’s the difference between an emperor penguin and a king penguin?

The OISE library’s World of Animals activity kit is guaranteed to fascinate both teachers and children alike! When switched on, this high-tech globe illuminates with dual-image effect that shows marine life swimming.

This kit includes both theĀ  illuminated children’s globe, and accompanying Animal Encyclopaedia. Each animal on the illuminated globe numerically corresponds to encyclopaedia entries, so users may easily locate and learn more about their favourite animals- a great way to teach early information literacy skills!

The World of Animals activity kit is found in the Science & Technology: Life Systems Collection of the OISE Library’s K-12 Manipulative Database.

Come and see the activity kit now displayed on the coffee table near the service desk located on the Ground Floor of the OISE Library.
