Mountain Lions in Arizona Lesson 1: The Lion as a Predator - Agile as a Cat

They discover that their abilities do not even begin to measure up! Learners then discuss why jumping ability, vision, and sound collection are vital adaptations to a mountain lion's survival. This beautifully prepared lesson plan provides everything you need to guide learners through an enlightening experience.
