What’s a lemur? Am I like a lemur? What characteristics do lemurs and humans share?

In this 40 minute long activity for Kindergartners and 1st Graders, we explore how people and lemurs are both mammals and vertebrates and learn about the features that make us similar and different.

This lesson was developed to accompany the Ako children’s book series. Each of the six Ako books feature a different type of lemur, from Bitika the baby mouse lemur to No-Song the Indri to Bounce the White Sifaka.

Use the Teacher’s Resource Guide to learn more about lemurs and gain background information before carrying-out the lesson.
