Disneyschooling: Wild Cats Unit Study

Today’s Disneyschool Guide is about big cats—creatures that I have a deep respect for. They are beautiful, yet deadly. Strong, but graceful. Looking into a big cat’s eyes, I’m simultaneously filled with awe and fear, and I can’t imagine a more regal animal. In my opinion, the lion definitely deserves the“king of the jungle” title, and after this unit study, you will likely agree.

The at-home resources are split by age to help you find the right fit for your family. All of the in-park activities are located in Animal Kingdom and can easily be experienced in one day, either before or after doing some learning at home.

Be sure to take your time having the in-park experiences, as each one has quite a lot to offer. Also, make sure to check your times guide in order to ensure you don’t miss the show or the Wilderness Explorers station, which closes before the rest of the park.
