Thank you to Dr. Darren for reading Night Animals Need Sleep Too by Fianna Marino! This is such a great book! I hope you enjoyed it!
Today's Activity: Bat Echolocation Games
Bats are nocturnal animals (or night animals like in our book) that use echolocation. Animals that use echolocation make sound waves and listen for the echo. They use the delay in the echo to determine the distance of things. Echolocation lets animals move around in the dark so they can navigate, hunt, identify friends and enemies, and avoid obstacles.
Today I have two activities for you to play with friends or family members to learn how echolocation works. The instructions are below, but you can also download them here.
