Brand New Outdoor Hour Challenge – Banana Slug
Creepy Things series of challenges
This week we’re starting a new series of Outdoor Hour Challenges from the Creepy Things ebook! If you download the sample for this new ebook, it contains the Outdoor Hour Challenge for banana slugs!
Use this sample challenge to get you started with the new series:
Our first creepy thing topic is the banana slug! We’ve encountered banana slugs on our hikes in the redwoods and at the California and Oregon coast. These creepy things are actually quite beautiful when you take a look at them up close. They move so slowly that you can avoid them if you want to, so they really aren’t to be feared as creatures. Learning how they play a vital role in keeping the forest floor clean and tidy is one way to show their value and necessity in the whole forest ecosystem.
Use these links to learn a little about the banana slug:
- Do your research before you look for banana slugs. Here are some links to check out for information: Banana Slug-Creature Feature, Deep Look-Banana Slug and Animal Diversity Web-Banana Slugs.
- Watch this informative video: Banana Slugs.
