All that talk about the majestic jungle in KidSpace had me thinking about the great tropical jungles and rare and exotic creatures we have in South Florida, other than in our zoos. Here is a list of some great family fun places to visit on the weekends or when the kids are out of school. Home school parents, these places will be a great way to support your lesson plan on animals and their habitats.
As you are planning your visits, don’t forget to check out some great books from KidSpace, some with fun illustrations of your favorite land and water animals, others with great information about them, and many with both. Check them out here:

~Remember, Reading is Awesome!
